- What Matters
I awake in a cold sweat.
Putting on my shoes, I have a goal set.
Cold air bites my unclothed arms.
Weaving on my bike through unlit farms.
Making my way to the metal bridge.
Looking down over the mountainous ridge.
Surprisingly, you're face comes into my mind.
I see all you're features but your voice I can't find.
I take a step closer to the rumbling sea.
Soon with you, I will be.
You took your life now I'll take mine.
If you don't want me to just give me a sign.
A light in the distance, could it be?
A sign from you trying to save me?
A boy steps out of the car and walks toward the edge.
"You're not thinking of jumping off of the ledge?"
I stand silent and stare at his face.
He has to hear my heart start to race.
A single tear falls down my cheek.
I don't want solitude, It's love I seek.
I hug that boy just as I would've hugged you.
You're dead now but it doesn't have to be the same for me too.
