Sylvia's Path


Sylvia's Path  

Every decade she does this
wrote the Lazarus Lady
Burns away her old self
throwing it over The Edge

Pulled back twice
but the third
Ah the third time is indeed the charm
She fell unhindered
no new self brought back
only the old
plummeting

I've stood on her cliffs and wondered
are there rocks below
or did she land in a warm sea
and does she drown there still

She made her way
She took her fall
and though I've walked part of her trail
the rest I've let overgrow
