Daily missive for Friday the 6th of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 6th of April.

Balance me
The edge is easily crossed
The blade too finely drawn
The line walked
A roadside sobriety test
Revoke my licence
It was always provisional
Watch me fall
From grace
Along with every other
Traveler
Who walks this way
Humanity so rightly flawed
Fulfilling no destiny
Other than its task
To challenge every choice
Nothing is certain
To be met
Along the way
What is made of the tour
Will be a mystery
Until it is done
It is not in my gift
Neither am I practiced
Or well versed
In living
I walk alone in existential
But not in this determination
It has no prefix
A postscript may yet be written
But the truth of this
Is beyond the grasp
However far it extends
Meaning barely
Brushes the fingertips
Ghosts are real
Lost companions
A comfort for inconsolability
A counter
To the balance of existence
Touch my lips
With a kiss of
Untold secrets
A marriage of life
And death.
