rather than jump

to be perched
on the edge
of something precious

to look out
from that edge
into a familiar abyss

to wonder at
what it might be like
to dive into it

to know that
there is beauty
awaiting discovery

to stand there
toes on the precipice
barely breathing

to remain still
waiting for the edge
to fall away
