Gyles' poem this week was 'On The Edge' by Jane McCulloch

Staring down at the dark abyss,

I am balanced on a ledge. 

Hovering above that thin line which runs between sanity and madness. 

And they call the edge.

Some event, some news, some action has propelled me into missile like spin.

While all around they have no idea of the torment, the terror, the struggle coming from within. 

A telephone rings. The doorbell goes. People are laughing. 

Now I sway. 

Should I let go?

Give up and fall?

So much easier to give in.

No. Not this time. Not today.
