Searching for Love at the Edge of the World

A little scratch

A tiny scrape

Falling into the crevasse again

I didn't know the love of late

Could push us deeper down

I myself started far in the crack

The light at the surface looked like a hand

I stretched one of mine up to grasp it

It burned when I touched it but I knew no better

I kept reaching up untill I knocked something lose

The light fell bellow me clanking and clanging

Down to the pits

No longer was there any light above me

But beneath

An inferno

I could not reach

Lest I fall

But at the bottom I knew

There was no salvation

Not for me
