You know it’s either fly or die

As you contemplate the ledge

You’ll never know if you don’t try

So you’re flirting with the edge


Tip-toeing on the precipice

Wind-milling your arms around

The memory of a kiss

Makes you dizzy looking down


The wind of words around your ears

Bears the memory of sorrow

You beg the Gods to soothe your fears

That you’ll be stronger tomorrow


Because right now there is empty air

That’s tempting you to fly

Endearments tangle in my hair

All I can do is sigh
