the story of us

by the first word, I’m hooked
and I have to hold myself back
from skipping to the last page
to spoil the ending for myself, like I always do.
I don’t know what the next pages will hold,
there aren’t even that many to begin with
and I am forced to cherish each and every word I have
until more are written, but I am impatient.
will this be a tragedy worthy of Shakespeare
or a fairy tale that leaves the reader breathless-
a happily ever after or two roads diverged?
are there hundreds of pages left in this story
or just simply three?
All I can hope is that the next words
and the words after that
and the words after that
are not
the end
