Inevitable

Life unfolds
Luminescent scripture, revealing truths, testing defenses
I watch you twist and turn, weave tender tendrils of self destruction
Slow motion, the flow and ebb of time, if only you could seize,
Could STOP! the relentless pounding of the second hand
Crashing down on you, suffocating, stifling, stiffening limbs
Time is nigh when you must walk, chin high, moral and proud
I weep for you and for myself yet do not know why,
Eyes reflecting courage
Staring through this looking glass
All I can do is write my sorrows, my joys, a  poem to the wind
Let all my fanciful imaginings flee on black wings
