stairs up

I wait here

dangling on the edge

of this forever night

afraid to take a breath

less

you breathe your last

back and forth

 I will the hands back

to when you were a child

with a song

always on your lips

look around

at anything but the present

circumstances

hold a butterfly

rather than

 what can’t be changed

and your life

is it worth dangling

from a chain

no longer winding the clock

the beat of your heart

frozen on your lips

air that I’m afraid

to breathe
