The simplicity of this poem is stunning, because it has a deep message and it could also have a different message for different people and that is what i love about poetry.
I feel like this person is at a crossroads at their life and they are starting over in someway. I do love how you say on the edge people that kind of where starting over is. But i think you used it as a metaphor here. That new beginnings are a scary thing as is looking over a cliff. Then you say fingers intertwined. So that tells me a new friend, or a new love even and love is one of the scariest things out there. But if you take a chance and it works out then it is grand.
I love the ending because i take it as being spontaneous in a way. You are diving (or in this case jumping) headfirst into this new adventure. Overall the poem is great because it tells a great story. Well done.
Thank you so much, Jamie!! I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment. That's what I love about poetry, too, is that people can have completely different experiences and take from it what they want and what resonates with them the most. Thanks again so much for reading!!! :)
