Standing poised
Upon the precipice
With a little fear
But more excitement

The water so inviting
A promise of freshness
The earth shudders
Beneath my feet

I have waited for this moment
Of thrilling surrender
Propelled into space
For a split second suspended

In that moment
A hint of eternity
With no thought
But you

I feel that I am standing on upon a precipice..but not to dive into the water but to make some changes in my life.

Nice poem, it captures alot of feelings.

Caress, for those who are not on the precipice with you it is easy to give advice. Their future is not at stake. Granted, sometimes the uninvolved are better able to see the forest for the trees. However, the responsibility for your life lies squarely with you. So if you are not ready to take that leap, only you will truly know when and if it is right for you. Think it through as best you can and may your landing be comfortable.

As one who leaps frequently, my biggest challenge is staying put. I guess in some ways I'm a passion junkie and I live my life passionately in all senses. Not easy to do. Now I'm trying to strike a balance and find my way to a passionately stable life. Is that possible? I think for artists, life might have been easier in past centuries where the "artistic temperment" was better tolerated, though not any more understood. Now a days, it's all "drama" and held against you. I value outside insight greatly as I live inside my head 95% of the time. It's easy to get lost and lose sight of the outside world. I might not agree, but I always value the added perspective.

BTW, caress, outside of suicide, there are very few actions that you can take that cannot be turned around. To live in fear is give up on life. I know that you have the strength and intelligence to make the right moves.

Hey goldri or NoN, you’re tagged... hope you'll play


The first player of this game starts with and shares "6 weird/things/habits/oddities about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a blog sharing THEIR 6 weird habits things, oddities.

At the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their latest blog post and tell them to read yours.
