The jump

Finally she was above everyone else. Drifting, floating above bowed heads weeping over her pale corpse.

Surprised to see there were people besides her parents. She tried to tell ma she  was perfectly fine.

“Don’t cry ma.”

And for the first time ever, ma was deaf to her pleas.

She looked up to see more people pouring into the Church as regret began pouring into her soul.

She drifted around helplessly. She screamed at her corpse, “wake up, tell them you’re okay!”

But that body of hers was frozen, locked and denied of this realm.

“I wish I didn’t make that jump” She thought as she began dissolving into oblivion.

Not heaven, not a blissful solitude she was expecting but bitter, painful oblivion.
