At the edge of a cliff

And so she stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

Her head lowered down
Her hands hung to the ground

She looked over her shoulder
Hoping to see yet never wanting to see

And so she stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

The wind whispered down
Slit between the trees
Grey upon the clouds

She looked over her shoulder
Hoping to see
Yet never wanting to see

And so she stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

She moved her feet
And wrapped her arms around her own
She felt the chill
Gripping her bones

She looked over her shoulder
Hoping to see
Yet never wanting to see

And so she stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

The water moved so silently
So far down below
Her eyes peered over

She looked over her shoulder hoping to see
Yet never wanting to see
And so she stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

She looked back down
At the serenity of the gray water
And watched as it came closer
Consuming her whole

And so she stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

And for one final time

She looked over her shoulder
Hoping to see
Yet never wanting to see

And there he stood
Alone and cold
No longer so bold

Her lungs filled with water
Her heart filled full.
