Tightrope Destination

by Natalie   Oct 3, 2006

Gently tip-toeing upon frailed tightrope,
Needing to volition my final destination,
Rivalry's against risks of losing my way,
For what could last no longer than a day.

Safety net removed from underneath me,
Only thin air now to catch me when I fall,
Breathing in toxic fumes which surround,
Struggling to not look at surface's ground.

Heartbeats controlling thoughts as I move,
Unsteady balance engulfs fears of falling,
Pictures flashing inside of my chaotic mind,
Daunted to leave unwanted scars behind.

_This could be hard to understand. I've met a guy, but I'm abit afraid to take it further incase I just get hurt in the end.

    That was a perfectly written poem. It was very clever of you to say what you mean, with out saying it at all. [Did that even make sense =\ lol.]
    Deep & descriptive.
    Good use of metaphores & choice of words.
    Loved it. Well deserved 5/5

    Wow, I would really have to say that this poem is amazing. I adored your use of words here, and I love the way you related it to using the tightrope. I would have never thought of something like that. But still, what amazes me is your use of words. Wonderful. I'm off to read more of your work.
