AugPoWriMo 30

No one wants to live 
after the end of the story
of a story with no ending

much better to be
in the middle of things
where nothing much happens

in expectation of when
all the puzzle pieces fit
into a much larger puzzle

no one will ever take the time
to find out if it really was
part of the same picture

we never get around to seeing
having been bound to this
corner of the universe

collecting all these endings
that for all we know
never began to begin with
