    Conviction by Lee
    February 19 2006

    Conviction, the last fleeting thought as you
    look over the edge of infinity, where death
    whispers under your ears, cooing you to
    make the final leap of your life, seem
    like the best moment.

    The wind blows chills down your spine,
    teetering on the cement balcony overlooking
    the city skyline and two hundred seconds
    before breathing your last breath,
    and closing your eyes.

    Free falling, with death on your chest
    pushing you downward towards the smooth
    running creek and the world falls away,
    with only the sounds of life's echo in your ears,
    quieting to a dull murmur.

    "...death ends in solitude, smooth as the river flows
    ...with the blood and tears of your woes...."
