Cliffhanger

You come
at will
And leapt off
the cliff
The breeze
persuades you
To fall
one way
Looking
down
You see
jagged rocks
While sharp
and piercing
You do
not fear them
The faster
you fall
Toward
the unknown
You cherish
this moment
You pull
your head up
Spread
your wings

Does a
bird
make a sound
Before it
hits
the ground

Poor, poor birdy. I hope it lived? I have no idea. I made this probably too vague, but I do enjoy having the lines structured the way they are. In a way, it is the bird jumping off the cliff and the stanza break is the jagged rocks. Crazy right?

I hope you enjoy!
