Smashing Finale

January 20, 2021


Glitter resides in my eye
The hot sun is beating down from the sky
My embroidered jacket is clinging to the sweat covering my back
The roaring of the crowd sounds like they are preparing to attack
Euphoria washes over me like a wave
The sound of the band engulfs me as if I'm in a cave
The floor below me starts to waver
And takes the form of a traitor
The wooden board under me cracks in half
And pierces my calf
I lean forward
But it just adds to the horror
A booming in my head overtakes
I feel like a car trying to step on the brakes
My whole body feels numb
As I succumb
To the feeling of escape that lures me in
My eyes close; the sky starts to dim
I let it take the key
To secrets beyond me
I let it fester
And become the master
The booming stops in my head
I feel nothing; it ends.

    Love the aabb... formatting, it's perfect. I immediately thought of glitter in the air. The resonance of something greater behind the scenes makes a wonderful appeal. Good work. :)
