Story a day: 3.30.16

One step.
Calm.
Two steps.
Still keeping it together.
Three steps.
Still keeping it together,
Like holding up a sand castle
Before it slides through my fingers
To become just more sand
Together.
Four steps.
Too late.
Can still do this.
Can I?
No choice.
Choice to run.
No choice.
Just go.
Hold it together.
Five steps.
Or six?
A dozen?
Infinite.
There’s no way to tell
When each step is a period
Stop.
Each heartbeat an exclamation
Go!
(Or no!)?
We go.
We go.
We go.
