On the Trail to Nowhere

by Brianna G. Harte

To walk through life,

never a step off the path,

and never feel like the world is turning,

to stop thinking of acting bigger,

is to travel on a trail to nowhere.

Without purpose as a guide,

days and years mesh.

Actions detach from feeling.

Colors dim from the foreground.

The spark of songs diminishes.

Will you let the lights die?

The moments ticking by,

fading into a black hole.

Will you rescue those you still have?

Or will you let them fall

so deep you can never get them back?
