The Roadside

Staring vaguely ahead

Hot sticky crimson dripping down

Cooling rapidly

Tumbling down the rabbit hole

While the rest of the world whirls by


Numbing frost taking over

Concluding thoughts evaporating

Last-minute sounds registering

Feeling starting to dissipate


A soft sob

A vacant stare

A single tear


An unknown variable with effects

Hopes, dreams, wishes

All vanquished

For the echoless void
