the dance

I stand on the edge
looking across the abyss
at the promised land

scared
to take that
crucial step

afraid
to blink
to miss that moment
to rejoin the dance

all I need is

courage
so hard to find
in this soup of
might-have-beens
and broken promises

no hand
nor a smile
reaching across

just me
standing at the brink
looking across
with yearning
in my heart.
