A Short Distance

Standing on the building 

seeking a facelift from time.

Scaffolding on the roof

unable able to hold

those who don’t want to be held.

So high above

So far below.

The distance between the two

separated by only seconds.

Feeling the air, hearing the thud.

Now motionless, breathless below.

In pain no more.
