Knocked.Senses.Knocked.Defenses.Stopped.

Dropped to the rocks.
Swiftly without warning.
Knocked.Senses.
Knocked.Defenses.
Stopped.

Slip to slide from the top.
Hopes wished.
Entitlements to get,
Diminish from sight.
Kites strung to fly high drift.
Turbulent winds shift.
Balloons blown to hold pop.
People sit fixed to scratch heads.
It hits.
With it to witness and hear,
Screams of approaching reality.
Feared but told one day...
It will become clear it nears.

Dropped to the rocks.
Swiftly without warning.
Knocked.Senses.
Knocked.Defenses.
Stopped.

Reality offends,
A truth kept to delude.
And knocks to the rocks,
Senses to defend them.
Stopped.
