a woman’s voice…

the wisdom of the ages…

whispering up from the chasms of the earth.

A chill scurried up his clammy spine

as he caught- real or imagined

like words in the wind

that exist in the mind.

Self doubts arguement

to a tricky decision.


His finger hovered still,

an eternity now.

Shaky handed second guessing

and it’s invisible barrier of indecision.

Courage to act,

courage to do.

His vow to himself.

His reason.

His logic.

“This must be!”

He pushed the send button

and it was done.
