ENG (dying, died, dead)
to stop living or existing, either suddenly or slowly

I scrawled that on the bridge wall.
On top of it.
I wrote it so he could read it.
He’d know it was from me, he’d know from the handwriting. He came passed here every day, running his fingers over that wall. He’d know that was what I wrote before I jumped, before I died. The bridge was high enough to put your arms out and pretend you could fly.
It was the perfect place to die.
Then there was her.
The other reason.
She pretended we were okay. She pretended it wasn’t happening. She was happy, I just knew it. She’d made me sit on the edge and take the plunge.
Him and her.
Well, fuck them. Both of them. I just wanted to hurt them, even more than they’d hurt me. Dying was the only way to ensure they’d hurt.
