No Road Ahead

Linda G Hil’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday Prompt is: “In the.”

Gertrude Abercrombie

 

In the time it took me

to decide if I should turn left or turn right

the shape of the road I had  obediently followed changed

and I had to decide if I should  go forwards

or backwards.

 

Wouldn’t you know it? In blink of an eye

the road was gone, my map was meaningless

it was dark and I was good and lost

and to tell you the truth

as I stood there very much alone and afraid of what could happen next

I had never felt so free in my life.
