It was a dare.

A ludicrous, futile demand,

with life-threatening consequences that could send her straight to the deepest depths of Hell.

Up here, though?

High in the sky;

Above the slaves of the damned,

Was her freedom.

 

 

Oxygen poured into her lungs.

Her heart hammered against her rib cage;

Threatening to jump out of her chest,

And fall to it’s escape two hundred feet below.

 

 

Oh, what a sight it was.

Beauty upon the horizon;

A mix of citrine and ocherous colors.

Isolated from the silvery clouds that had ebonized the skyline mere hours before.

She felt her lips part;

Tongue dancing across the fullness of them.

Her lungs taking in another gulp of fresh air.

 

 

A mere thought,

With a tremendous conclusion;

Ending two hundred feet on the ground.

What was to be a dare,

Was gradually becoming her truth.

 

 

Yet her eyes opened;

Cerulean irises meeting the hypnotizing skyline.

An inhale of content washed over her interior,

And her muscles relaxed.

It was only a dare.

Only a dare.
