The Crush

While climbing mountains
I breathe deeply
an eternity of sky

Fastly beats the uneven
hammer of my heart
under multi-layered
coats of pain

My fingers clamour
for a more solid grip
as I slip from 
the safety of my line
into the grey of your eyes

Arms flailing
the vertigo swallows me
as I fall hopelessly
into your soul

I cringe
waiting for the impact
of jagged rocks and 
the inevitable crush of my bones.
