Bracing myself in the cleft of the rock
The wind roars all around
Howling
Screaming
Pushing against me
Trees bend
Sand swept up
Stinging my face
I stand
Against the cold draft
I close my eyes
Letting it all fall away
Leaving it here
At the apogee of this peak
It all falls away
It plummets off the mountain’s edge
Crashing below
Gone forever
