Racing to the End

It was like we were lost in a race

The point of which

I could not tell you now

At the time it seemed important

Who was in first place

But what did that even mean

And how was it determined

Who made the most

Sarcastic snip

Wittiest reply

Quickest roll of the eyes

Laughable in retrospect

No less devastating in effect



Crushing egos

Crumbling dreams

Killing love

Still we raced on

Until every bit of hope

For our relationship was gone

E.A. Fussell
