APAD 4: That Feeling

That Feeling

when there are less pages ahead
than you’ve read

when you can’t read on
but you can’t stop

when you are unaware of the words
only of how they make you feel

when the story lifts the window-shades on so much ugliness
shines barely a salt-pinch of hope

when the ending is too far away
and too too close

when you are gob-smacked, breath-holding
utterly wrung-out

when you finish

when it’s done

when it’s over
yet still you carry it, chew it
think it
talk it

even when you are sure you can never write again
because you will never be that good

drink it share it live it
because this is how it’s done
