Longing

Standard

I yearn to jump and end it all.

I long to stand and stare,

Out at the emptiness before me

And bid it all goodbye.

To jump and kiss the sky;

For once feeling a closeness to the earth.

To fall and embrace death.

Elusive death.

Or is it?

Why so forbidden by mere mortals

To be greeted, embraced, longed for?

Why?

I yearn to jump and end it all

For life seems to be going downhill.

Why not follow it, and maybe–

Embrace life in death.
