Go all the way…
That’s all They’ve given me – this Invitation to Die.
Be careful what you ask for in earnest, Child.
They will give you the desires of your heart. They’ve always made Good on Their Word.
Will I even recognize it?
Maybe the falling is all there is on this side of life.
What I mistook for arrival was a series of ledges.
Just enough time to catch my breath after having the wind knocked out of me.
Then…another free fall into intangible.
I’ve flinched and flailed in the darkness, losing my grip on ALL THE THINGS.
I anticipate nothing.
There is only nothing.
There’s no way back, Child.
You crossed that threshold long ago when you asked for this.
Don’t try to resurrect yourself. You’ve come this far.
Now go all the way.
