End of a Journey

Image courtesy: Magpie Tales

Life as a blur of colors
Rushing past my windows
Those faces inside cars
A mirage of emotions

The street lights stand tall
Guarding like angels
Twinkling their eyes
As I sigh...

The tunnel lies dark
Open wide, the mouth of a beast
Daring me to enter
An enduring test of time

I lose all control as the car skid
The smell of burning tyres
Fill my nostrils
Pungent and strong

The end is near
So painfully close
White lights blind me
And then, everything is still...
