Precarious Soul

The storm raged all night in my heart,
and it felt as if the very breath of me
had escaped as if a deflated balloon.
And I stood on the precipice of rejection,
the cracks in my soul so precarious
I might fall into myself.

  1. So the first thought I had on reading this well crafted poem, Paul, was “If we fall into ourselves, do our egos inflate or deflate? Either one taken to extremes probably would be a catastrophe.”
