one hundred.

It’s easy if you try hard enough. Just take one leap, one hundred feet plunging. One hundred hands pulling you down. One hundred feelings of liberation. Inhale, exhale, the rhythmic pulse a hundred times quicker. Adrenaline, windswept locks, half crested smile. One hundred ways to do it, but you chose this. One leap. It’s the only way you tell yourself. Total and utter liberation. Sense? Yes, liberation; you keep telling yourself. A hundred voices whisper, a million thoughts running. Goodbye. Shut up, shut up, shut up. It’s the only way. You take the plunge, one hundred feet. Oh, how brave. It’s the only way. You close your eyes, a hundred flashes. The shutters slowly closing in on you. And then the inevitable – silence. Liberation.
