How does it feel to walk on a tightrope? To never see the end? Just one flick and you fall apart? You shatter on the concrete floor. In this poem I tried using a different style- inspiration from @hayha, and here is the poem Tightrope. It is longer than any other poems I've made because of the setup, but please try to get through the whole thing!!! :D
