DRIFTING PT. 1 THE BEGINNING OF THE END (THE REST THAT COULDN'T FIT ON THE PRIOR ENTRY

	The one responsible, Needs to learn…  a valuable lesson
!

But…..
“But What?  You can’t deny it.  Your life is f_ _ _ed, and she’s the one behind it.  And there’s 
only one….  One way to make it right.
Either or you’ll be with me…  for all eternity come midnight”!!!!
“Damned I am,” quotes the Reaper!
No matter what I do, come midnight 
I’m an eternal sleeper!!!!
An ultimatum from Satan…  A real catch 22!  
	What can I do!
				What should I do!
					What would you do!
			                                         IF YOU WERE IN MY SHOES!!!!
My heart is pounding and pounding like never before!
Rapidly racing as I draw near the door!
I step outside and leave that darkest place
Where for six weeks…back and forth I paced.
And for six weeks…  By now you know the rest-
Hand on my chest, as I anticipated cardiac arrest,
Breathing my last…  As I’d succumb my soul to death!
And all the while -
Pleading with God… to show His mercy,
	Lift  this curse, and somehow resurrect me..
Lest I drift re-direct my path,
	But ultimately it’s too late,  cause I already have!
Into the night I go… One thing on my mind…
Beware oh sleeper.  Vengeance is mine!!!!!!

to be cont…..

    Hope you're not feeling this way because of a woman, Larry. This is a pulse-pounding account, and I am compelled to reach out and try to help you (or whoever this person is). It's gripping. Incredibly captivating poetry. You have much talent. Please assure me you are OK. Love, Carolyn
