Hole!

There is a very deep hole a man has declared

a bottom of which has not been found

perfectly round created not of natural design

as if an entrance to another domain

discovered by a farmer on his vast barren land

surprised discovering it by chance

nobody had mentioned the anomaly was there

as down into its depths did stare!

 

Experimented in trying to detect how far down

the ominous blackness descended

throwing objects to see time for noise to return

that never happened was disturbed

even fishing line to the length of fifteen miles

was not sufficient to reach the base

metal rings went down as far as he could see

it was frightening absolutely eerie!

 

Made him shake felt very queasy on the edge

certain something was crawling

up from this hole to take or devour his being

what could it be where did it lead

had to get away as his mind was overwhelmed

even his horses cried out in fear

ran from this bottomless pit would not go near

sensed an ominous atmosphere!

 

Was the moment of the awakening about to unfold

had he been spared so his story could be told?

Crushed!

That defining moment came for them both

together for what seemed like ever

each leaving a happy marriage for this affair

which had turned from just a fling

into a long happy relationship love discussed

but tonight the moment crushed!

 

They tried to have sex yet the spark had gone

that flush of embarrassment

overcame them both as they sat back to back

an emptiness overwhelming

without another word the man dressed and left

all feelings somehow bereft!

 

The women for some reason overcome with guilt

remembering her only child

she deserted all communication had been broken

in the bedroom she reminisced

rubbing a small hand over the crumpled sheet

at the moment those pangs of defeat!

 

The man he had no such qualms he went back

to a wife who still loved him

arrogant in his attitude without a conscience

resuming where he left off

to him knew there was always his home base

self-preservation he did embrace!

Without!

More stories of real people are told

too often the young

end their lives by taking them away

shock and dismay

without explanation or portent shown

reasons often unknown!

 

To friends relations work colleagues

they appear stable

no hint of  the fateful impending act

outwardly coping

inside unable to express true feeling

leaving everybody reeling!

 

Is it life’s to complex and demanding

something within us

society has always created conflicts

that can overwhelm

most contain each sombre thought

support is sought.

 

Regrettably some cannot converse

themselves conceal

maintaining that perfect false facade

locked in their minds

not until they are found deceased

too late the soul released!
