When I stood at the edge of the abyss,
I closed my eyes and
fell into it with open arms.
Drifting through its vast emptiness.

When I opened my eyes
I saw in the infinite
what I couldn’t see up close.
Other souls like mine.

Souls that celebrated their being,
questioned the infinte
and saw beyond the fear of boundaries.
It was like falling in love.

Written for Day 2 of NaPoWriMo. The prompt was to write a poem based on the quotation given by the Bibliomancy Oracle. My quotation is :

If you wander far enough
you will come to it
and when you get there
they will give you a place to sit

from “Oh No” by Robert Creeley

  1. Like Falling in Love. Truly It is that, coming home to like minded Souls is like falling in love.

  2. Oh lovely. Your way with words is just amazing!

    Souls that celebrated their being,
    questioned the infinite
    and saw beyond the fear of boundaries.
    It was like falling in love

    That is called living!

  3. An easy flowing poem and yes, I love the part about “It is like falling in love”, maybe with oneself?

  4. I think that falling into the abyss taught me quite a lot!
    beautifully written,
