Absolutely terrifying; the feeling of uncertainty
Taking root in an empty space, instilling a sense of urgency
It’s true, the worst is not knowing –
While events remain ongoing,
Equally troubling is being disempowered
The ability to act accordingly –
Forever stuck at the halfway point.
Everything, everything, becomes disorderly
The structures of your life fall apart
Crumble from the top down
Anyone can witness you spiral into the abyss
No one even feigns interest; as in your instability you drown.
A scenario more so frightening, than when liquid fills your lungs
Because even then the outcome is certain,
And your mind, doesn’t carry the burden
Of being in the dark.
