He liked it up here.
He felt he was something,
Someone.
The streets and people below were minuscule,
Unimportant,
Underlings at his feet.
They would look up to him.
But they didn’t.
Going about their lives,
Looking up,
None would see him sitting there.
He edged closer,
His concrete perch cold
Against his hands,
A chill seeping through his clothes.
How easy it would be
To let go,
Fly like the birds,
Free……………
But not today.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Nice verse Pen, but I hate people like that.
    Knowingly putting themself at risk, or not, then someone sees them and the emergency services get called.

    I used to wonder if they care about anyone other than themselves.
