Cliff Hanging

I feel my mind slipping, 

almost dangling from a cliff. 

 

Obsession and love are different, 

Yet similar with a twist. 

 

You left me in the cold, 

And so I left you behind. 

Although it breaks my heart 

this is my time to shine.

 

To fend for myself, 

That was the first lesson, 

A scared little girl,

With no direction. 

 

Which way do I turn? 

Do I go up or down? 

 

Do I stay afloat? 

Or do I let myself drown. 

 

For so long I’ve buried all this pain, 

building up walls of concrete from the stone age. 

 

I wish I could see 

The light I bring to others, 

 

While I can’t see myself 

I seek confidence in others. 

 

I can’t tell how long this pain is going to last.

It hurts so terribly, because of my past.

 

Definition of one self is determined by their view, 

One could see a sky so big, 

Or an ocean dark blue.  

 

These are the things I have yet to learn, 

But when I do, 

 

My light will make your eyes burn.
