trying not to look down - jun 3rd, 2015

we all share the same fears
shadowed by the same demons
no one is immune
you ask a question
you tell them one little thing
one tiny bit of information
maybe just a notion
and they grab it
and they haunt you with it
it’s always there
floating in your
the world we knew
has gone somewhere else
and we are left to cope
balancing on the beam
the best we can
trying not to look down
