i was
hanging over the edge
hanging on by a thread
you were all my hopes and dreams
a strand of expectation
keeping me alive

and then
the rope was cut
i cried as i watched it
disappear above me

i longingly looked for it
through the agony
of the free fall
when you have no anchor
and the world is collapsing

but then i opened my eyes
and i realized
you was a chain
that was holding me back
keeping me hidden
consuming my life

and love,
i have never been
so sad and glad
to see you go.
