The one who got away

by sschubert

Copyright ©2009 Stephanie R Schubert


I get more sarcastic
by the minute.
Wondering why I bother.

Let it bubble,
beneath the surface.
Slowing building up.
Wondering if I let it go,
will it ever stop?

Could be a magic show
Maybe a bad accident

All I know is I see it coming.
Thinking about succumbing,
into the darkness.
Which chases me,
Inhibiting what I see.

Or just continue
to pretend,
that all is well.
Gingerly stepping around,
my next farewell.

Here I come.
There I go.
Keeping the moment,
at bay.
Watch me,
as I become,
the one who got away!

You played the reader all the way to the end then like a fish on the line, reeled him in.
Nicely done. Enjoyed, and Steph, have a grand tomorrow.
