I Never Thought

I never thought –
Never knew I should,
Never knew the need –
Until the moment
Had passed,
And the thought was wasted.
The awareness, the foresight,
Perception even, required was
Never mine,
And the lack left gaps – vulnerabilities –
Since struck with sufficient strength
To shatter, sending shockwaves
Forward, forever – for nothing.
Forming a fear like a cramped cage
And a need to think so fervent as to
Freeze the form, the future
Into immobility.
