Reblog : When It Comes

Another re-blog, for the benefit of those that are new to my blog. This was written (origninally) back in November last year. I have a couple more I want to re-blog, but won’t inundate you all. Hope you like this one. It’s called “When It Comes”.

You’d best be ready,
when it comes;
It’ll sweep you away,
without thought or favour,
and you’ll no longer know,
your own heart or mind.

You can try and stand,
when it comes;
It will break you down,
leave you shattered and shocked,
realizing all convictions,
are as substantial as mist.

You won’t believe it,
when it comes;
All life experience,
leading to that moment,
ill preparation,
for what takes you away.

It will change you,
when it comes;
The knowledge of self,
thought to be inviolate,
disregarded without a thought,
without a regretful look back.

Hold on tight,
when it comes;
For although terrifying,
it can be wonderful,
to be driven mad,
by such sweet intoxication.

Give in to it,
when it comes;
Stand with open mind,
embrace with open heart,
for life is too short,
and regrets too long held.

    I liked the gradual build up of suspense… I was gnashing my teeth by the middle of the poem, asking myself, “when what comes? what’s coming???” with the music of Shark playing in the background…glad it had a happier ending though, and I’m glad you’re reblogging these goodies for people like me to enjoy. πŸ™‚
