it begins and before you know it
it's gone
and a whisper fades
and the feeling lingers
drifting inside you
somewhere you
feel it before you
know it
and a shadow dissolves
and a notion of it
calms you
for no other reason
an echo of a
shutting door
makes you fall
and a shudder shakes
and the thought of it
sends you
and you never
it was over
