SOMETHING

Something is out there
waiting just beyond sight
at the farthest reaches of thought
very near the realm of dreams

lying out there
on the verge of reality
much like a beast of prey
knowing its craving
will soon be satisfied
only time remains constant

reaching outward there
clutching grasping
preceded by a feeling of dread
fear of facing that dark unknown
coupled with a bitter-sweet acceptance

our visitor is out there
we must all feel that embrace
payment comes due
to this debt owed by all

yes, something is out there
