Poetry: Sky Diving – Nikki Giovanni

I hang on the edge of this universe
singing off-key
talking too loud
embracing myself
to cushion the fall

I shall tumble into deep space
never in this form
or with this feeling
to return to earth

It is not tragic
I will spiral
through that Black hole
losing skin limbs
internal organs
my naked soul

Landing in the next galaxy
with only my essence
embracing myself
as I dream of you
