Hanging by a Thread

Oh how I wish to be weightless And I wouldn't have to be here The threat of ever falling down Would all but disappear My fingers wouldn't be slipping I'd float aimlessly through the air I would never have to worry About the trouble everywhere But alas its here I'm hanging As if i were a maiden dead It's slipping fast, I'm slipping- I'm hanging by a thread

    Haha, when you're posting a poem... there's a caption above the text box that tells you what to copy/paste at the head of your poem, and at the end of it... just message me if you have any problems :)
