Dry mouth, high altitude.
Two cliffs separated by an emptiness.
A voice from the void makes its way into her
ear, ‘jump with eyes wide open or turn around and
descend.’ Kicking a rock in frustration, she takes a few
steps back from the deathly edge. Doubt begins to crawl into
her skin, as it carves into her lungs, begging for her to give in.
Driven with purpose, she invites the budding adrenaline. Staring
at the horizon, as it infects her toes, legs and eventually her
vision. Breathing heavier, she begins to run. Faster and
faster, until she finally reaches the end. Eyes wide
shut, she lifts off the edge. Ready for
the good and repercussion.
