Fool's Jump

We're at the cliff of decisions standing as shaky as shaky can be hoping the ground won't give way and quick crumble throwing us down to the insatiable sea We built up this sabotage mountain on promises caught up in dishonest air, on moments where only a single heart beat was enough for the both of our bodies to share Now as I glance over toward you, I realize only you have a parachute on In the blink of an eye, rush of wind past my arm I try to reach out to you, you’re already gone. Gasp of my breath, hand of shock at my mouth and in a split second I know I close my eyes tighter than ever before and down toward your shadow I go.
