Tightrope

  • Tightrope
  • I am walking on a tightrope.
  • one side is happiness, the other, depression
  • I am slipping off. my demons chasing me
  • I’m trying to trudge to the other side.
  • What else can I lose?
  • I am in such a vile state.
  • I seem to be standing still.
  • Holding on to the highwire.
  • Still like a statue, stone faced
  • and no one can see,
  • the emotional storm, within.
