Tightrope

Wed, 01/04/2017 - 23:09 -- lizann

Never thought I would be here

on a tightrope 

one side is new love

the other old

If I fall in the old 

I have a chance to make it new again

we are both damaged, perhaps it's time to revive us

If I fall in the new

I might damage her

for she is unharmed by love yet

Do I really want to be the one to do it?

See the conflict here is

Either side I pick 

I fall 

So maybe I keep stumbling across the rope

To the end

Or is the adversity pointless?

For to fall is easy 

But to hit the ground at the bottom 

Is it worth it either way?

This poem is about: 
Me
