Flash Poem: Waiting By Maddie G

Posted by Maddie on November 6, 2011 at 9:15 PM


The lights

are blinding. 

A tug of war

pulling at the chest,

From the North and South poles

Falling a long way down

Or inching closer to the clouds--

The darkness is blinding:

A shot in the dark.

Knowing what's vertical, not horizontal.

A gun to the chest. 

A spinning compass, spinning questions, non-negotiable answers.

The answer lies in a directionless somewhere.

Just waiting to hear the echo of the trigger.

No edits, merely a stream of consciousness type of writing tonight--raw. Completed in 3 minutes.
