poetry by j matthew waters

living the high life


the world opens up and
closes in a heartbeat

you knew what it was like
to be on top of the world
reaching up and touching the sky
challenging your ego
and your super ego
to go even higher

there are many ways
to reach improbable heights
whether legal or otherwise
naturally or artificially
or simply metaphysically

there are many ways
to reverse the trend and dive
deeper than any man
has ever dared gone

neither heights nor depths exist
where you are destined to reside
once the world opens up
and closes in a heartbeat



december two thousand sixteen

  1. For many there are only depths to explore (alas in search for highs)
