A Poem

This is a poem taken from my novel. I thought I'd share it with the world, see if you have any opinions on the matter at hand. It's basically Drew (the main character) writing a poem to Simon (actually Simone, but she insisted to be called Simon. Just roll with it.)

She walks on needles,
fragile blades that almost fail her
and quiver over a sea of red.

You’ll fall in if you’re not careful, they said.
                                    and drown. 
                She didn't listen
                and kept walking, every step a paper cut
                from pages of her favourite books.

She was always walking as if on needles.

Almost falling but never quite.
