On The Edge

On The Edge

Unbroken path leads back
The way I came while on
Each side the land runs out
To fade in distant haze.

In front of me the void
Assures oblivion,
Patiently awaiting
That last small step of mine.

I don’t remember how
My feet conveyed me here,
Nor any of the turns:
Decisions lost in time.

On setting out the route
Lay wide and arrow-straight
As far as eyes could see;
We walked off hand in hand.

It matters not who first
Slipped from the other’s grip:
We each believed our paths
Led true. The distance grew

Until the day I found
We’d drifted out of touch:
I had never noticed
You straying from my side.

Glimpses offered hope that
Our paths would meet ahead:
I’ll wait for you forever,
Alone here on the edge.

  1. Hello! Thank you for this blog. My fourteen year old son was diagnosed at the age of four with Asperger’s. I have always made it a point to do what I can to help raise awareness. I am writing my first novel, “Collapse”, a dystopian novel about the future downfall of America. The novel has three main characters that fight to survive in a world that is falling apart, in the end they unite together to help save the country. One of the main characters is the world’s richest man and has Asperger’s. When I began drafting out the story, it was never a question that one of the main characters would be an Aspie. I envision the character of Howard Beck as the adult version of my Aspie. The novel will be released July 6th. I am offering a free sneak peek to raise interest. I hope you will take a look at it.https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/163667.I welcome contact with anyone that is blessed to have an Aspie in their life.collapsethenovel@gmail.comI have also written an article entitled “Asperger’s Syndrome in Fiction” that you are welcome to use if it meets the needs of your blog.http://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/2332741-asperger-s-syndrome-in-fiction
