Tips Of My Fingers

I had it. For a brief split second…

I had it.

Things were smooth. Going well. I had a good grip on it all.

Then something slips. One thing gets missed.

Next thing you know, I’m back at the starting line.

I’m back right where I’d come from only this time more frustrated for almost having had it together.

The pieces come crashing down and I’m left with a bigger mess than I started with.

I almost had it.
