Stairs to Nowhere

I often find myself

On the middle of the staircase

For when I run upstairs,

I remember mid-way

What I have left downstairs,

And then it’s neither

Upstairs nor downstairs for me-

Just a gaping hole

Where my past used to be,

And a void that looks

Quite like the future;

I am moving

To a single-storey house!


“It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe
