Riley welch is a poet from texas living in colorado. She posts three original poems a week. 


You can see the end now.
Finally stretched out
upon us!
The creeping edge.

Do we approach it?
Watch with guarded view.

The fall would be steep.
Carry yourself carefully.
As you step, feel the ground,
move truly, more truly,
beneath you.

Let your toes
steady themselves
along the edge.

Let your feet feel freedom
that you cannot.
