Precipice – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

VJs Weekly Challenge – Transported




“The only truth is music.” Jack Kerouac


As the world wrapped itself
too tightly for my liking,
I took refuge in a language
of emotion that swept my skin
with such feeling I entered
new realms where my heart
was painted with words of
precipice and left me faint,
inwardly I wept with joy,
transported to the
seventh heaven on waves
of ecstasy.
