Excitement

I saw my friend
On the tight rope walk
Above the abyss, dizzily high
 
A voice inside
Whimpered with excitement
And egged him on to daring feats
 
He swirled and twirled
On his uni-cycle
And made the world gasp below
 
Then suddenly,
3 feet from the side
With a maniacal grin on his face
 
He fell to the earth
Like a bird from the sky
Shot down by the hunter's rifle
 
I flew to his side
And took his hand
But my friend had already gone


Back to the list of all my poems
