The Beginning of the End’s Beginning

beginning of the end....

——————

The Breath rips out of my chest

like the squealing of

a dying balloon…

The pavement sends its

heat up in uncomfortable

waves…

as I push and struggle

to hold back the clock…

To slow time’s elephant

like plodding…

Afraid of what may be

down the road…

Dreading the future…

but blind to the past…

And, so here I stop…

Catching my breath…

teetering on time’s

very brink…

Afraid to move forward…

or to back up…

Knowing that the slightest

twitch…

Could be the one

that tosses

me off the cliff…

only to fall into a place…

Where the bottom…

is friends with the darkness….

or…

may not actually..

be there at all…
