near miss

«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
- persistent whisper of one final hope
for doing somthing, anything but this.
«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
(come here, dear razor, near the precipice.
take aim! strike fast! plunge down this rocky slope!)
«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
- persistent whisper of one final hope.

«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
- persistent whisper of one final hope
for rescuing my blood from the abyss.
«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
(are you real hope? or only cowardice?)
«miss» is there no end to this tightrope?
«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
- persistent whisper of one final hope.

«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
- persistent whisper of one final hope
to overhaul my bite, make it a kiss.
«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
this i'll know if i dare reminisce:
bad aim'll be the only way i cope.
«miss» (again?) «miss» (again?) «miss»
- persistent whisper of one final hope.
