I climbed mountains

and mountains

of tries....

and found myself

sliding down

with each step

But I kept reaching,

grabbing forward..


no grip sustained me

no ledge to

hang from

nothing to keep me up..


I just slid,

letting go of

every resistance to stay

and began to settle

in the richest darkness

of being alone
