Falling from the ledge
Did I jump or  did I fall?
You were standing there beside me
Up against the red brick wall.

You kept saying, you didn’t mean it
But, I knew where this would lead
I saw you two together
I knew you planned to leave.

You’ve become so damned impatient
I could tell that you were bored
You seldom took my hand in yours
My feelings were ignored.

You had lost all need or interest
Once a challenge, now mundane
Now you’ve decided to pay attention
So afraid you were to blame.

When I fell from the ledge
Did I jump or did I fall?
Are you the cause, or motive
The reason for it all?
