Ummm...this tale takes one on a metaphorical journey...yet never having left...can we really be so..moved...?


A last hurrah


I stand here so sure
So solemn
My feet planted in the snow
And wonder
Wonder where the tide of life has led

We cast our lines to sea
How swiftly falls the sinker
Carrying our bait to mouths eager for this one respite
This empty
Hollow
Gulp

Knowing that
Sure
Bold
The hit will come and drag us down where light has no face
where warmth and wet
The only meaning

Only dare to question
Only have the courage to open eyes
So tightly closed
We are
Damn you
I am

Yet the stake is too huge
The waves roll inexorably in
Our inundation
A last hiccup
A last hurrah

We spend ourselves like pennies
Worn
Faded
Alone

Shivering
As we stand there in the snow…



YouSir
