fear of falling

damn this
restlessness,
leaving me to walk with
an uncompromising swing down
uneven steps and
stare with glassy eyes up
at dark-stained,
chipped fingers,
looking for eternity
under every rock
and left amazed by its transience,
the catch
in my throat keeping
me from completing a
single
breath.
