the pit

I will not fall into that pit

I do not like the look of it

Perilously around the lip

Can not breath must not slip

In to the dark with no end

Bereft of light no sound to send

So i teeter around the ledge

No thicker than a razors edge

Holding air to keep me straight

shallow breath to compensate

Eyes fixed upon the road ahead 

dreams sedate but never dead

Each focused step draws the line

Which widens with a lapse of time

So i will not fall into that pit

I do not like the look of it
