peer over the ledge
you hestitate
wanting this peace to last always
upon the balcony
you gather courage
close your eyes so deep
yet you can not leap
because there is something itching
scratching
screeching
its hopes dying scream
fading dim
but you dont have to
you really dont
the problems dont cease
because you refuse to breath
life is problems
revolving
falling
some things make it worth the pain
learn that now
see it later
and save that ledge
for fates razor edge
