NaPoWriMo #30 At Last

Muddled and befuddled by sniffling, sneezing, coughing,etc., but now, recovered and composed, I complete the assignment after a really dark dream influenced by way too much TV and self-pity…

 

Tragedy

 Inevitable

you should be standing here

alone in the dark

empty as when you began

now that the men you loved,

the ones you hated,

are both dead.

Maybe you were blind before

without volition

ignorant of option

but now, playing it all back

step by inexorable step

you can’t help but notice where

you might have foreseen

foregone, forborne, forgiven.

Hatred begets hatred

see how it ends?

That’s a beginning.
