Dance on the horizon.
And a lumberjack perches on my shoulder
Hacking at my courage.
The last thing I will ever feel.
But this night
Since birth I have waited,
Tonight's the night, my final step.
I breathe, I jump,
Bare feet leaving the jagged concrete,
With such minimal force.
My eyelids flutter shut,
A trivial smile plays around my lips...
And then death grasps hold,
Enveloping my body in the last calm moments of life.
