Approaching the Edge

Approaching the edge
Walking quick
Across the roof
The ground lays below
Far below
Six stories
Maybe more
To the earth
Frigid waters below
My heart quickens
I know I’ll never make it
The concrete path
Would catch my fall
Batter and beat
My body
To a bloody pulp
Bone crunching
Teeth shattering
Fall
But the railing holds me back
Keeping me on top
Just as I wanted
Just as I needed
