Slippery Slope

The Dark Side

I feel it coming,

not far off.

~The downslide.

On unstable footing,

I sense the shift

of angle below me,

too late to dig in my heels.

The decline is imminent,

my balance is off.

One miscalculation

and now the bottom

rushes towards me

in accelerated speed.

No moment to seize,

nor hope to clutch,

no way to maintain

stable equilibrium,

upon this slippery slope.
