The Terror


The sheer blind terror - Of hitting a wall

Then the walls close in - And thereís nowhere to turn

 

The cold clenched fist - Of the twist in your gut

The sickening sweat - And the trembling breath

 

The desperate longing - The hollow, the void

The pleading for mercy - The pleading for death

 

The yearning the burning - The tipping and falling

Clammy seized and solid - The biting bitter sinking

 

Flooding tears aches flashing

Colours born and dying twisted

Beaten battered broken thrown

Spent and dropped

Deepest pain

 

The brink and depths - the silver thread

The mind and numb - the shoulders torn

The bashing banging head hurts thumping - tension mounting overwhelming

The edge the very edge - the pinpoint pricking apex.

The razorís edge

Unending and impossible
