Full Tension

When did it begin?
Did you notice it?
That weight on the soul
Tied down and left to drag.

Ropes at full tension
Pulling all your disappointments
Trailing after you
Bringing all motion to an end.

Confused you turn
To count them
Listing them all
Putting them in order.

Concentrating on the task
Of testing every rope
Checking the tension
Twanging every strand.

Who will create the slack
Turn your head from the past
And pull you forward again?
