One Hell of a Ride

We are all one amongst the mass of others
                                               ants slowly winding through the queue
quietly reserved
                                      amazing how well we can behave
when focussed on a common goal                       no matter how trivial

a carriage waits  to propel us into the darkness
                                                                                              locked in and helpless
we cannot stop the ride                 once we agree to the terms

                        d

                        r

                       o

                       p

                       p

                       i

                      n

                      g

                             backwards into the abyss
with the wicked witch laughing behind us
                                                                          she knows what’s next
and disappears through the twists and turns

holding you in I know your fear
                                                           only my fear has eloped with the sadness
on the high speed     d
                                           e
                                                s
                                                     c
                                                           e
                                                                  n
                                                                         t  

                                                                                  I’m laughing
cheering the loss of thought
                                                       catch my breath on the tight corners and smile
forty seconds in which you fear you will die                               I resurrect

 
craving once more to sit on the precipice
                                                                                  F
                                                                                  A
                                                                                   L
                                                                                   L  

screaming through the question mark
twisting it around to create
another answer
for
me
