I wonder now
Indulged deeply into my own curiosity,
What is the most poetic way to die?


To drown,
With the sensation of burning lungs,
Seems much too helpless and dream-like.

To be shot,

With the rush of fear,
Seems much too frantic and brutal.


To burn,
With the warmth of tickling flames,
Seems much too bouncy and rogue.

But to leap from atop a structure,



Seeing people below, rapidly approaching,

The feel of the fall,
And the end of all turmoil.
Is that not the most poetic way to die?
?

This poem was inspired by something my sister kept going on and on about. I'm curious if she even knew I was listening. nspired by the creative and complicated mind
