the only way to turn things around is to finish talking

at the fall
on the wall
with the wind in your hair
no view in front of you
too cloudy the sunset
headaches from     yesteryear
darkness for the fear
of missing your life
on the road to     tomorrow
with the     future     in hindsight
keep the mirror tight
to have a look now and then
until it began
the backdrop to     yesterday


but i know
you will remember
about the     hour
the     minute
the     second
the very moment
your life turned backwards
and was lost
