I walked a lonely path one night.
A thousand paces to Devil’s cliff.
The moon cast a haunted glow;
an angry sea beckoned below.
Waves smash against the rocks.
My nostrils burn from salty spray.
Temptation lures me to the ledge.
Daring me to step, over the edge.
Eternal tides batter the shore.
Suicidal winds whip at my back.
My lifetime of experience gone;
another lost soul has moved on.
