The breath-taking view from up here
Is one inspired by you.
Every time I come here,
I find you here too…
And when I start that tricky descent,
And most need you,
You stay behind
Once rock-bottom has been reached
And I, once again, have supreme control
(or so I think)
I tell myself, never again…
But the way up is so simple
And so exhilarating…
I reach the summit
And try to join your world.
This time I am not going to climb down.
I am going to fall –
Passing tumbling vistas,
All merging into a collage of kaleidoscopic colours
Only one thing will break my fall,
And that’s the one thing
That you cannot offer – or don’t want to –
