"Jump", She Said

"Jump." But her mind wandered days past that moment. Her, falling. People screaming. Traumatized by something they could not prevent, but was bound to happen.

What if she survived? That would be so hard to rise from. What if she ends up a vegetable? Loses her memory? That would be good, actually - if she did. What if she loses an arm, a leg...

But what if that was the end for her? People will move on, of course. They have no other choice. Will it be worth leaving everything behind?

What if she has nothing to live for? She knows what its like to feel bliss? She's been to Heaven and back. What if that's enough for one lifetime? But she's not willing to move further, not having it.

What if this is it. How does one person move from this. She sees nothing. There is nothing left. Everything was taken away. Everything was given. Everything was received. That's it. Nothing more.

She's in so deep, she doesn't even know if there is a way out. Is she supposed to leave this hole? She wanted to be in it in the first place.

She has nothing. She has no one. 

"Jump", she says. "Just jump. One way or the other, you have to go. There is nothing here for you."
