Edges

Black waves crash beneath our feet

as we dance on the edge of forever-

Red leaves rustle in the breeze 

high above us, through the trees 

and we fall in the dark together


 

Falling, falling, falling down

into a pit of smoke-

I open my eyes, now I can see

all the wonders there could be,

and then the voices spoke


 

Whisper, whisper in my ear

the secrets of our hearts-

Our future life and even past,

until the voices cease at last

and my world is torn apart


 

And then I wake to my descent 

into the black below-

But then the waves flood the shore,

drowning the seaside forevermore,

and  the memories that I know




We spread our wings, now we're birds

and we've learned to fly-

Above the waves and cliffs, we rise,

saying goodbye to words and lies

and we soar across the sky.





I gaze below and see

every field, cliff and ledge-

We fold our wings and make a dive

to where we live our fragile lives

and we dance along the edge. 

The End
