climb

clambering up the icy slope, out in the open,

we need to hope:

hope we reach the summit,

some day, any way.

wind gusts hard, threatens to blow us off,

but we battle on, towards thee top,

where does it end, we don’t know,

those who get there, to heaven go,

forever in the clouds, pages they turn,

those that fall off, some say that they burn,

is it really the end, or a point of no return.

It doesn’t matter for we will keep going;

and for the sky we yearn…

swing

pounding heart, cold sweat

legs limp, head not feeling too

right,

but little time left

darkness closes over,

peaked over the edge and saw

darkness;

there is no light on the other side just

fade too

blackness, now but too soon,

what stopped me from fading to black,

what brought me back,

a brief idea, clear in time, a spark in the back of my head

almost stopped ticking now kicking legs straighten,

body numb now, cold sweat heart still,

                                         pounding

                                                          beating

                                                                          thumping

but at least pumping.
