The Edge

I'm at the edge of the cliff.

About to jump.
You run to come save me,

But it's not enough.
I look at you one last time.

Hope to God that you'll be fine.
But that's why I creep closer to the edge.

No more pain.

Nothing to gain.
Maybe if I pretend to slip.

With my eyes shut

And my arms around my hips

You won't be able to grab my hand
And pull me up,

because I'll already be dead.
