Six Feet Above

You told me to follow where

My heart leads me.

“Take the road less travelled.”

So I freaking did.

I was ready.

I packed everything I needed.

“This journey is gonna be fun!

To the future I go!”

But the farther I go

The harder you pull on the

Rope around my neck.

I couldn’t breath.

So I took some steps back

Giving myself some air

Finally settling for the comfort

And I breath even more

 the rope hang loose

I looked back to check

If you’re still holding the line

Indeed, you were.

There you are…

Six feet above me

I was smiling… ’til I realized

I took too many steps back.
