Heart on a ledge.

an experiment to be read from top to bottom then bottom to top.

as his heart stood on a ledge
if he was given one more chance
he’d step back from the edge
he’d step back to where it started

all the people behind him knew
he couldn’t reach out and touch
leaving everything behind him
he narrowed his path so much

that turning back would be impossible
he realized he was too far to the edge
and he took his deepest breaths as
his heart stood on a ledge
