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
