alternate ending

The pain to know
the weight of time
the angst of rhyme
the pressure flow
the words 

describing tender
heart/mind bender
tripping rhythms
of life schisms

once upon a dream
with a twist at the end
unimagined stream
chapter verse rend

what then?

in a rush to be loyal.
promised and will pay.
what will become when the contract's done,
when disconnect from daily sways
into my creative
out of my furtive
hopes to write
experience and strife
when i have no more 
to show up for?
