Black Holes

Some things can cause time to warp and bend, 

Some parts of our lives are black holes.

We feel sucked into, trapped,

held by an irresistable force.

Once, finally, free, time moves too tidily,

too easily,

too quickly, its repitition stopped.

It's not so familiar anymore.

That is frightening,

for there to be so many new, original things,

so many new, original moments.

Stop thinking of yourself as home,

start thinking of yourself as somewhere to jettison from.
