She stood with me on/
the precipice of greatness. /
Then, she pushed me off.

Standing On The Edge: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

March 10, 2011

As she stands
at such a precipice,
dare I extend my hand
at a risky time like this?

Is she dangling
dangerously?
Or merely trying
a better view to see?

Will my reaching out
block her enthusiasm
as she removes her doubt
and leaps across the chasm?

I will retreat and offer no assistance
until I’m certain I’ll meet no resistence.
