Perilous Steps

Updated on November 27, 2012

Dark of night
Moon Spun light
Glinting off stars at my feet
Scattered upon desert sands
Silk between my toes, tingling
Carefully spaced steps
Fear couched in the stopping
I push onward...
Blink, and realize
Motion less time
Too late, I am bewildered
Bright stars no more
Razor blades on an empty floor
Daring me to move
No squares on this chessboard
That will not cause my soles to bleed
Stale Mated
I wait, weary
Standing frozen in time
Or choosing
To shread foundations of my soul
