I did take the leap.
But in retrospect,
I was a fool to have leapt.
Because I fell.
It wasn’t just a canal.
It was a ravine.
Hurtling downwards,
I was numb.
The agony came,
When I hit the bottom.
For two days I lay there,
For two days that I laid there,
I tried to tell myself:
At least I was still alive.
But I didn’t believe myself.
I couldn’t bring my mind around.
Until today,
Someone played soothing music down the chasm,
And reminded me I was still alive.
Thank you.
