“Always a shadow around a corner”…

~

He claimed that he was pushed…
The moment he saw the light…
Whilst stood right on the edge…
Felt the urge, but froze in fright…
In his mind it was so clear…
He had it planned all along…
But when it came down to it…
It all went so very wrong…
 
He decided many months ago…
He couldn’t carry on this way…
So he plotted to commit the act…
Right down to the time of day…
In a note, he wrote it all down…
Explained the where and why…
Told his family he loved them…
Then began his journey to die…
 
He carried his heavy burden…
Tears in his eyes as he walked…
He thought it’s what he wanted…
But lost faith as his mind talked…
He had chosen Covent Garden…
A place he’d first fallen in love…
But as he stood there deliberating…
In his back, he felt a sharp shove…
 
The bright light was so dazzling…
And his scream was never heard…
As people went about their business…
His body was crushed into the Earth…
The angels came to collect him…
Took him up towards the light…
But his conflicted soul protested…
Told them this was just not right…

  “They” pushed him off the platform…
Insisted that he wanted to live…
This decision was taken from him…
He had so much more to give…

But nothing now can change it…
The outcome is set in stone…
One more soul joined heaven…
His murderer remains unknown…
