Lover’s Leap, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Lover's Leap

Lover’s Leap

Standing on the edge of a massive chasm
So deep is it that I can hear my voice
Vibrating nervously off the bottom
Dearly wondering if I have a choice

What is cherished stands on the other side
Action not taken soon shall be too late
The wild fire burning across will have died
There is not a reason to hesitate

Should I vault and my distance come up short
Will ever rest in peace on the chasm floor
If cowardly there shall be no retort
Either way have lost the one I adore

Love doesn’t always provide a bridge to cross
Chances need taking or suffer love’s loss
