i must confess,
i have walked the highway's edge
flirting with the sidewalk, and
wondering whether to take
the one step towards the
rushing waves of traffic

i have balanced upon precipice
after precipice gazing downward,
the finality of flight a strange
and dangerous daydream
that pulls me in

and i have stood at water's ending
the sea a susurrous caress, and
yearned to move forward once,
again, again, until the ocean
can carry me home

so many storms i have weathered
so many burdens i have shouldered
and yet sometimes i forget the
most important thing of all;

i have made it this far,
i am here
i am worthy
i will go on.
Trigger warnings apply.

I really needed to write this.

and the diagonally striped yellow and black beacons 
sometimes beckon, instead of drive me away . . . 
and i wonder if the engine entering my ribcage
and the glass driving into my skull
would give me silence,


or leave me hanging on,
worse than ever before,
sustained by those love me
sustained by those who do it because they must.

So I keep driving,
the small adrenaline rush wilting away . . . . 


---edit---

Sophia, 

We are here, still.
Let us be here, rippling.

it's a familiar fiend,
or a familiar feeling.

but i am glad i am here,
still.
