Self goal

20140318_151823

eyes
set on goal
I moved
steadfast
swift
in pursuit
while
life
whizzed past
in peripheral vision
mocking
as
I scored
a self goal

One thought on “Self goal

  1. Ode to the dead cyclist

    It was just a moment,
    wheels spun in the air,
    the earth, she hugged you close,
    and the cycle of life
    rode on without a sigh.

    You would have just
    been a stranger,
    framed by my window,
    for a fraction of time.

    But now
    they lay those flowers
    where you fell,
    you have a scent,
    a name,
    a face,
    you mix with the
    light and the breeze,
    a part of you
    has seeped in
    through the panes
    to ride with me.
