“Lemmings Leap” – poem by Matt Kline

Jumping handinhand

Destiny determined

by outside forces

Knowing the pain

of going forward

Hopeful that it will

be of short duration

and less severe

than the pain

left behind

a searing sensation

the countdown to death

one final kiss

tears streaming down cheeks

then impact

no last request

Just eternal blackness
