Compelling Mind


I look down

It's dark and cold

The ground is bare

Maybe i should go back inside

But my mind compels me to stay

To look at the stars

& the gray cement

To get closer to the edge

& to let go

I wish my legs could hold still

But they move

Maybe I could run the other way

And yet my mind has other plans

But I wanted this

Always wanted to let go

So maybe that's what I should do
