No hand to hold

The candlelight
brightens the dark cavern
I seek your hand
to grasp and steady myself
against falling
feeling a false step
somewhere
will drop me bottomless
into the unknown
I imagine myself alone
here... sucked into
the deep abscess
shuttering in my nightdress
spasms of helplessness
send waves through me
walking the edges
of the recklessness...
the animal smell
of the air
frightens me...
your hand is nowhere
gone... like your footprints
I was following in my dreams
