tightrope 1

invisible threat tightrope
strung ten skies high

identical suicide step count,
regardless of frightful

fiercest focus,

mind’s blinking madness,

One thought on “tightroped

  1. I like the verse
    No place to hide
    This entire poem is like
    A metaphor of life at times
    We all have our ups and downs
    It can feel like your walking a TIGHTROPE
    There are times when life throws you unexpected curve balls be it in health or
    Personal and there’s no place to hide
    To avoid…like what else could possibly happen..
    Great write..
    You doubted yourself on this one
    You were wrong
    Poetry is like painting in art gallery
    It will be interpreted by many and have
    A different meaning..
    Just by one brush of the stroke
    Your quill is your brush!
    Your canvas never disappoints!
