The Rope

one day
we will wake up
and things
will  never
be the same

nothing changes
and everything
stays the same
when we are 
wrapped up
and twisted 
life's game

we fuss
and we fight
and want things
to be right
but when
it all 
comes down

we are still
and nothing is 

we think we can cope
at the end of our
but the length
is never

and life remains
but we keep on
because there
is nothing left
to hold onto
