Fateful Journey

The bridge

Battered by the elements

An unsteady journey across the chasm

Destination unknown

The boards splinter underfoot

The sound echoing across the picturesque landscape

Desperately grasping for the fraying rope

Teetering on the edge

The snap of the twine inaudible

And for a moment I am suspended

Weightless, my descent inevitable

I relish the feeling

Free of all fear, knowing what is to come

… The end
