Dear Roma,

Dear Roma,

The sky is split in two,

As are you and me,

I thank the stars,

Both yours and mine for this,

That I am not alone.

I look for a reason,

To jump off this ledge,

I find none.

I guess I am here because you found one.

As I sit here,

The edge of the world it seems,

I change my mind,

The view is worth this sacrifice.

I look for a reason,

To stay here forever

Stuck in this abyss,

Something amiss.

Sitting above all the anarchy and mess,

My petty problems seem pointless.

The sun and the vista,

Seem to mirror me.

Rarely the storm has

The visage of an enchantress

I behold in her and in me,

Peace harbouring chaos.

The life inside the city calls out to me,

I am sorry,

But I don’t think I am going to get off this ledge

On either side.

The sky is split in two,

So are you and me.

As I bid you adieu,

I see the silver lining shine,

Which had ceased to exist in your mind.

Yours

Roma
