Treading the Abyss

Treading the Abyss
or
Six Twenty Seven PM
IMG_5706
There’s a fog in your head when you tread through the abyss. There’s fog all around you.
And all the broken umbrellas in the street flapping in the wind are like dead birds.
The men who count suicides are liable to include themselves.
Loneliness is the colour of ash and feathers, and you know you have to go.
It’s almost 6.27 pm and the dark streets are filled with yellow lights and despair.
And the girl steps onto the highest roof in the city and looks down.
There’s nothing wrong with her. Nothing that a kiss couldn’t fix.
