It Happens In An Instant - Poem by Rick Berry

It happens in an instant
There’s barely time to react
It’s like a bolt of lightning
Rolling thunder, sunlight
Silently screaming your fate
It’s sent from the heavens
There’s nowhere to run
There’s nowhere to hide
It slices through your body
You feel paralyzed, ecstasy
Everything moves quickly
In slow motion, your pulse quickens
You stare with your eyes closed
It’s a kaleidoscope
Vivid colors, mainly black and white
Your entire life flashes before you
Like a silent movie, it speaks loudly
Like a bolt, it penetrates
You never had a chance
You’re in love
