Upon Reaching the End

#poem #poetry #theend



I can only blame myself.

The dread, the pain,

slightly different yet the same.

The fleeting glimpse of joy-

temporary, I knew.

Knew it all along,

knew it couldn’t last,

knew that it would burn

and choke and tear apart

my silly, hopeful heart-

knew that time was limited,

even from the start.

I wish my path had never crossed

the book my cousin lent me.
