at the brink

I’m dangling
on the edge of a cliff in my heart
waiting for the sound
of those three delectable words
that I’m dying to hear
pass through your honeyed lips

they are there

I feel them in the wind of your breath
and as I hover, my heartstrings dangling,
your stillness pushes me forward
and echoes
into the rocks below

all the while,
I catch my breath, teetering
listening for muted sounds
to break the silence in my soul

and so I hold my breath
and wait
for the moment
your lips awaken
so I can
f
a
l
l
into
you

at the brink
