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?
