after the end

​There is an end after the end
where all expectations 
are laid to rest

Where all that has happened 
is not for the best

Where nothing’s revealed
and no more appeals
can be made

Where no new beginnings await

You run in circles
between now and the past
’till a trench is dug
so deep and wide
you’ll never cross
to the inside again

So blow up the center
rake up the debris
leave nothing to remind me
of what I once held
but could never be

  1. “You run in circles
    between now and the past” — It’s something akin to the unwinnable race.

    Thanks for sharing this post, I enjoyed reading it and having my neurons stimulated this morning. You earned a follow.
