 Self Truths

My line

I walk a line now
Too narrow to follow
Too tightly strung for any slack
Too strongly woven to break
Newer than the usual breed of walking lines
Not better nor worse than them either
Just newer and stranger
Impossible to twist or stretch
Near invisible to sight
I must walk it or fall
Fall to one side of me or the other
But one side is holding me up
While the other side tries to pull me down
Never any stress on the line only on my mind
One day soon I am going to snap
And when I do she won't be there
Because I let her go
She is safer now than I could ever make her
Safe from me, Safe with him
Protected from the society in which she lives
By the two of us
Her silent savior
Her vigilant protector
I can't stay on my path any more
It's too hard to see
I think it just snapped
Can't feel it under my feet
I'm falling now
To the side I fear
With no regrets
But the thirst is prevalent
It consumes my mind with horrid thoughts
I must go back to the maze
And find my guiding light
Because I won't run from it this time
I will follow it to a place where I can see
A place that will show every one who I am
