Leaving: A #poem #dVerse

It’s easy to climb:
Just don’t look down.
It’s easy to leave:
Just don’t ever
Cast a glance
Over your shoulder.
But easiest of all is
To stay:
As easy as sliding down a greased pole
Into not-so-quiet desperation. 
It’s easy to stay but it’s also
The hardest of all:
Tortured hours
And the slow death of the soul.

I am posting this, a little late, for dVerse Open Link Night, where Linda Lee Lyberg is hosting.
