I looked down the side
Of a cliff
Watching as
Death, my idol
Stared into my face,
From his place in the stars,
Holding out his hand for me to
Shake.
“Come closer, girl,
I know you dream of
Meeting me,”
he whispered.
“All you need to do
Is step forward and
Jump.
I’ll catch you.”
The next thing I knew,
I was floating, too,
And like he promised,
He caught me
