"One day, your life will flash before your eyes; make sure it's worth watching."


I am afraid of climbing mountains
because I fear the height
will tempt someone
to push me off the edge

Sometimes,
I think I can make it
up, the whole way
but my body gives in

Even with you;
My knees go weak,
but it is more truthful to admit
that you make my entire body go numb,

And yet,
it feels as though every vessel,
and every vein of my existence
has been set on fire as we climb together

I'm not sure how you managed
to make me disregard my fear of heights
entirely -
how I am able to pull myself up with stones

But you must be extraordinary
to make my fear of heights
and falling, heart-first,
seem so fantastic
