  • i like the edge.
    the edge can be exhilarating,
    balanced, teetering,
    trying to stay on the slender ledge,
    trying to keep yourself from
    almost wanting
    to take that extra step and
    free
    fall.

    the edge can be comforting.
    nestled into a corner and
    disappear.
    sheltered,
    invisible.

    the people who tiptoe the edge are
    often
    the most worthwhile you'll
    ever meet.

    cling to the edge to keep from
    getting lost in the
    mundane mediocrity of the
    middle.
