Sky Diving - Poem by 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
searing
my naked soul


Landing
in the next galaxy
with only my essence
embracing myself
as

I dream of you
Nikki Giovanni
