I’m bruised
and broken
from breaking your
falls.
I see you
once again
approaching the rim
of your next disaster.
You’ve never felt
the full impact
of a fall
because I’ve always
caught you.
When you leap
this time—
I won’t be there.
Traveler Sep 2
You have one of the most beautiful soul I have ever come across.
Not a single blemish on your body could represent your eternal self.
With eyes that see through, I look upon the beauty of your eternal youth.
See what you may of my surface and wonder of my underneath,
I am but the spring of passions and countless quantum leaps.
Traveler Tim

Blimishless is a new word somewhere
Right?

ground me down from any
tiny jump that could catch
your eye - a leap of faith.

The powers that be
Messing with
The calendars again
Were they vacation days
Or PTO?
Leap year history. My brain hurts

Just like a leap year
We'll be together again
For another bye
Just by thinking of it creeps me out

To take that step
You bare your soul
Ready for rejection
Vulnerability taking hold

To take that step
You steel yourself
Ready for acceptance
Love thyself

To take that step
You make a transition
Acceptance, rejection
What’s the decision

But to not to take that step
To not be vulnerable
Keeps you safe
Leaves you comfortable

To not take the step
A life stagnates
Lack of fulfilment
Stalemate
Wahed Jan 3
Enveloping darkness,
Mysterious and daunting.
Secrets are covered,
Memories disappearing.

Confusion overwhelms,
Frustrating and painful.
Lies find life,
Shadows follow...

The ledge is near...
Fear leads me,
Can I even jump?
It feels as though the darkness completes me.

Spiraling deeper,
Emotions are out of control.
A whirlwind of pain,
A never ending hole.

Surrender, surrender!
Drop the capital “I”
Break the cycle,
Rip up the box!

The ledge is near...
always within sight,
ever shall it linger,
Until we learn to take up the fight!

The key is gratitude.
The lock is hope.
The doorway can open a new adventure,
But only if you are seeking what is true...

Leave the shadow,
Face the almighty sun!
Let the rays shine brightly,
Let the journey of love start the fun...

The ledge is here...
Now what shall be done?
