The Big One

The moment
when you realize what you thought
is no longer true.

That piercing
pain that catches you off guard
and kidnaps your breath.

The feeling
of "what now?" and how will you
ever recover?

Mounting anticipation
that is swept away with an old broom
and thrown out.

Future plans
dashed and trampled and discarded
without a thought.

Feared Betrayal
staring you in the face as you
hear the reality.

Ouch.
