only dimly

reaching out for something weighty,
I feel the lightness of what I am
like feet that cross the chasm’s edge
looking for gravity
and tumble end over end
in free-fall,
held by gravity but unable to sense it.
I am pinned in place by a truth
I cannot comprehend
I am held by it
like a child in the womb
that feels the world
only dimly.
