What was David  thinking,


the night before,


walking there,


the second during,


the eternity after?


Did he have second thoughts


in mid-air?


Was there regret


or only relief?


The moment when you decide:


This is what I’m going to do.


This is how I fix it.


That exact moment


is an emotion that


doesn’t have a name.


You will never know it exists


until you feel it.


David dissolved


into a dark, blue cloud.


He’s gone and now


he’s everywhere.
