Not fall



There is a net of outstretched arms

a mesh of those who care

holding up the sky

holding back the dark ocean

spanning the abyss


and I cling amid the stars

to the rigging

swaying in night breezes

the last waves of sunset

over forgotten passages of time


to the structure

strong as spiderweb

spun for me

that glitters in sun and rain

and I know it will not let me fall

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
