A Once Promising Oblivion

Breathless. Exausted.

Your decisions have led you

to places you never wanted to go.

You turn around and everything

is unfamiliar.

"How did I ever get here?" you ask.

As if something had carried you

into a coma.

You were sleeping, pleasantly at first.

But now, all the lovely places and faces

have turned into dreary darkness

and daunting, shadowy facades.

What was once a wondrous alternative

to your former state

has now become the essence

of adversarial heaviness.

Tricked. Fooled.

Deceived into believing a beautiful lie.

Now you're in the midst of a reality

that was never your fate to begin with.

The past can't be changed.

Ahhh.....

But, the future can!

Now coherent, you recall truths

you once scoffed at

because they appeared

to be your enemies.

But, presently they seem to be

your only friends.

Knowing that the consequences

will linger,

bravely you face the door

that appears before you.

The knob is cold to the touch

but the warmth of the sunlight

on your face, as you submerge

from the dusty darkness,

gradually carresses away

the tension that once

dominated your being.

You are free.
