Moment

(Skip Friel)
May 5, 2012
Passage

His car slid wide

The moon jumped up from the road

The rain moved out

It was clear and a little bit cold

Everything he loved

Rushed him all at once                       

He settled at the bottom of the hill

 

For a moment in time

His mind held the moment still

 

Part way numb she

Stared at the backyard pool

He’d gone once before

This time his car was full

The front was building in

She would breathe again

As soon as she found the will

 

Sometimes she’d just like not to feel it

Sometimes he’d like to let it ride

 

His gut went weak

The chief said we’re letting you go

Sorry for the sudden notice

But it came from somewhere above

He had to let it in

He would start again

As soon as he took that pill 

 

He had to let it in

He would start again

As soon as he found the will 

For a moment in time his mind held the moment still

For a moment in time her mind held the moment still

For a moment in time their minds  

Held the moment still
