You swallow words of honesty. All signs present.

Narrow road leading towards a dead end. Faster. Giving

space for delusion. Faster. Rejecting the possibility of hurting

the one close to you. Faster. It’s better this way, you think.

Faster. Locking eyes with the one you’ve led. Crash.

  2. Beautiful! A man’s life spinning out of control because his mistakes. I love you end it with crash. An abrupt ending but an useful illustration. πŸ˜€

  7. Sometimes, we get so caught up, that we just, rushed through everything in our lives, either because we’re, running from something in our pasts, or that we simply, can’t slow down, and when we finally DO slow down, it’s usually, too late…

  8. I love the way your poem is structured. The way the lines are longer in some places and shorter in others is quite pleasing to the eye. The contrast between longer sentences and the short one word ‘sentences’ is quite clever.
