Terrere (standard:poetry, 73 words)
Author: SareAdded: Jan 28 2003Views/Reads: 2174/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
"Terrible" - a, 'causing fear'; from the Latin "Terrere", frighten.

I feel as though I am falling, 

as into a black abyss; endless 

and terrible, still clutching 

at that which bears me ever downward. 


And looking up, I see through a mist 

of fear, the hands that extend 

to lend me aid - grasping, 

but hopelessly out of reach. 


And tightly in my hands, though 

gravity would wrench it free, 

the weight of possibility, the 

last thread of a desperate dream.
