Sliding the slope



I want
 to watch
 the sea from this top-hill
I stride hazily closer toward the view until
It's too late – I realize, I'm close to the edge
starting to rumble
 tumble my feet
 right on the ledge
My balance fails me , knees are shaking
I slip
 lose my grip
 on the ground it's me taking
Down down I'm falling towards the shore bend
Big rocks and rough shell – I see my end
Panic
Then
Breathe
As I start to decline
Lay my feet down - firmly on the steep wave of mine
I skid
I swirl
I gain my calm once more
 gliding downward towards the shore
 Now in control
Slide gently to the bottom
Survived my slippery slope hill decline
