So I.....

I've climbed these stairs a million times before
Being led by wolves in sheep clothing
I dare not believe anything or in anything anymore
So when I open the door
And stand at the ledge
I wonder what lie drove me there
As I stand on the ledge
The crowd forms waiting for me to jump
From the distance I see her
She too wants me to jump
But she claims it is for different reasons
As I am wondering why am I here?
Maybe a part of me wants to believe her
She beckons me to jump
She tries to convince me to jump
But I can't
I won't
No one ever catches me
When I fall
So why would this be any different?
Trust me she says
I would never leave you or deceive you
Take that leap of faith
The crowd grows larger
They are getting restless
They want to be entertained
By my pain
I look back at the rooftop
And see my footprints
Same feet, different shoes
I teeter back and forth and
Of course I listen to the voice inside my head
And give them what they want
So I.............

Jump....Might as well Jump...as Van Helin sang.

We are so trusting when we are young, and then we age and become cynical...we find too many who tease us to the ledge, but aren't there for us when the going gets tough.
And yet...we want to trust again, or we just say, "what the hell"
and jump one more or one last time.
intriguing write...I am baffled that there are 80 some views but no comments on this piece.
It is quite relatable...

Maybe you wake up from a recurrent nightmare?
This is the way I read your words, although it is maybe drug related, either way it is a scary place to be..
