The Precarious Edge of Adventure

You’ve never been heavier.
With each pause comes a faster descent,
every word screaming sever, sever
But I’ve never
felt anything as splitting as this,
again I fear I have
given every warning a miss.
Yet, my mind loses grip of every clever
twist and turn of this body
(that is not mine)
If only it was kinder in its violent trappings.
I wish to not expect the expected,
yet in my eyes the future is laid out before me as
a map of some fantasy land
that I wish I did not recognize.
This is a crossroads that I have trodden
many times before,
yet,
I know
it will take me
somewhere
I’ve never been to before.
