The Edge

I can feel it
Feel it close to me
My body aches
My mind subsides
Oh I pray for the release
The moment will soon be here
The lights will soon glow dim
For darkness will fall
Oh yes it will fill me
As my body goes numb
My mind is all of a sudden
Flooded with memories
Memories of the past, the present
My mother, my family, my marriage, my children
But then as fast as it comes
It goes dark
My body gets cold
As the blood rushes through me
The last sound I hear
Is the blade hitting the floor.
