The Never Taken Step

Image

Standing on the edge

Watching the cars down below

Racing

Always racing

Don’t know where they are trying to go.

 

Sigh and loosen your tie

Get the crick out of your neck

Tired

So tired

Just wanting to forget

 

Your suit is crumpled

You haven’t slept in days

Rest

Elusive rest

From the way life plays

 

Bloodshot eyes and ashen face,

Your suicide note lies on your desk

Soon

So soon

You will be able to rest

 

Funny how outside in the noise

The clock still ticks inside your head

Ticking

Ticking down

Till the moment you are dead.

 

Its cold up here in the evening,

With no one to see you up so high

Invisible

Always invisible

Will they even notice if you die?

 

Those scores of hurrying people,

With their jobs, families and 6 oclock shows

Uncaring

Blissfully uncaring

But that’s just how it goes

 

Take a breath, this is it

A foot in the air

Jump

One Jump

You are almost there

 

But wait, you cant go on

Fear and shame are in your eyes

Turn

Turn away

Back to lifes lies

 

Back to nothingness and lonliness

In an empty home

Back

Back to

The desperation you call your own

 

That step you didn’t take

Is going to always pull you down

Coward

Living coward

Screaming silently you still drown.
