I need some direction

I need some direction

cos I’m standing on  a wall

and I’m scared to take the next step

cos I’m  frightened I might fall

and I’m losing all my focus,

my brains a huge abyss,

I can’t quite stay on track,

I neither hit nor miss.

and then I find a thread

floating in the dark,

I follow it a while

as it flickers tiny sparks

but then there’s another thread

and then there’s  another one

I never quite hold on to them,

their there and then their gone.
