Indescribable Instant

Indescribable Instant

All in one indescribable instant, everything changes.
The instant just before that delicious sparkle,
the one that sets off the sharing…
That instant that can never be caught or identified;
the instant, after which nothing is the same.

In that instant, your world has changed.
You won’t recall how, not exactly–
You may recall why, or perhaps just almost…
but one thing is certain:
after that sparkle, after that instant,
know, there’ll be no going back.

And, if that instant ends in the near or distant future?

The instant just after… the difficult extinction….
the one that starts off the ending?
That instant, that can never be caught or identified;
again, that instant, after which nothing’s the same.

In that instant your world has changed.
You won’t recall how, not exactly–
You won’t recall why, or perhaps just almost…
but one thing is certain:
after that ending, after that instant
you’ll never ever be the same.

Perhaps there’ll be another instant.
And, what happens if that instant ends?

Yes, what?
Well,

then in one indescribable instant,
everything changes.

Again.
