Where is the Safety of My Grey

Where the line

separating dark from light?

Where is the safety of my grey,

my balancing act?

Right now,

I do not see it-

either I pause to build my strength,

to grow firm,

opening the possibility

of sliding back down

the slippery slope

during my gap period,

or I am unyielding when I may not be ready,

and risk the spiral

after an emotional attack

by someone I’ve upset.

There are risks

on both sides.
