No Great Finale


Not a Greek tragedy, or an epic tale of woe,

but something sad enough.

A heart rends. The sounds of ripping.

Like grief. An emotional arrhythmia. Quivering. Of regret.


Gnashing of teeth. The word haunts. Maybe for a lifetime.


Moving on… Not exactly.

Time continues, and regret

lingers. Memory wears down the heart. Playing like an old film reel.

But never finishing. No closure. No great finale.

Like a long unwind.

That does not

  1. Yep, I feel it and remember being there, but it does fade. Well said.
