In the After

by beeseeker

What somebody said –

And, oh how we laughed –

Was the turning point’

The point of no-return,

Looked only like so much

Dust on the highway;

Neither more nor less,

No more remarkable,

Than the rest.

How sad –

Or is it ? –

That we don’t see the before

Until we’re living

In the after.
