this morning i woke with a realizationMature

i
This morning I woke with the realization
that I’d seen my future in my sleep,
but when I reached for the memory of it
there was only darkness.

ii
There has been an inexplicable sadness
burning like acid in my throat all afternoon.

iii
The forecast predicts a storm to shake the windows;
there will be no sunset tonight.

The End
