My Abyss


An open crevice, like

A monster's gaping maw

Waiting, beckoning

To swallow me whole.

 

I stand at the edge

Alone. Afraid.

The darkness

Echoes below.

 

I want to walk away.

Like I always have.

Ignore it until it goes away.

But it never does.

 

So here I am.

Preparing to take the leap

I've dreaded since birth.

To conquer my fear.

 

Before I do, to save myself

I must remind myself

That I am never, never

Alone.
