26. Stopwatch

I’m falling

Well, no, I jumped,

Which led to my falling

This world has me stumped,

And it can’t hear me calling

  

It’s a lovely world, really,

But I see through its beauty

And now I wish I could have

Appreciated its beauty,

But I did, thinking back

And I loved this world so much

 

So why

Do I die

By my own hand?

I just don’t get the world,

And I just don’t understand…

 

And as time unfurls,

I have a fleeting thought

If I so love the world,

Why live? Why not?

And if I had a stopwatch,

I wonder if I could just

STOP

And go on forever,

But I just don’t understand…

The End
