Everything Goes Black

Everything Goes Black short poem

Photo by B Rosen

Young love comes to call
only in the end to fall
in the beginning like a river it flows
in the bitter end like dried and cracked autumn leaves it blows

It enchants you like the suns rays
and hypnotises you like a pair of dancing blue jays
you have nowhere to run for all you can see is fun. fun.. fun…

Suddenly your head is smashed into a brick wall
like a harshly thrown baseball
that wakes you up
and everything goes black…
