Vertigo

Balance can be achieved.
For those with balance, I have seen.
Yet there is no balance in me.
They say balance can be found
In the sound of a babbling brook,
Or in the infinitude of silence
In the night between the stars.
They say balance can be reached
By striding out taking a few easy steps.
By taking a few gentle, calming breaths.
By reaching out, taking hold of Your hand.
Yet still, I’m falling,
Though I never reach the ground.

Scrawl, scrawl,
Scratches on the wall.
On bone, on wood,
Unintelligible, alien daubings.
Forgotten scripts
From foreign lands exploring.
Last words lost,
Never repeating.
