Jumper

Jumper


“The only way you’d fall is if you jumped.”

That’s why you’re afraid of ledges

Because a tiny part of you wants to jump.


And you fear that man inside your head,

Telling you how easy life would finally be.

 

But I dangle off the ledge, because I’m not afraid.

  

I’m already dead.
