What if life was a movie drama
we as audience sit in suspense
knowing what is coming next
we mutter, the should to be
decided but isnít, shrapnel
screeches air, slices our day
awakens us to unthinkable
turns, played out on screen
imagination grips us, fantasy
more real, terror of nerves
speeds through skin and limbs
hurt by love, we withdraw far
alienated from that, we cared for.
