Tunnel Vision
Tunnel Vision
01/20/09 at 08:13 PM by Jonathan Bautts
A curve loomed in the distance,
Quickly filling the windshield
As the car continued to accelerate.

I wanted to slow but couldn’t tear away,
Eyes transfixed by some indescribable force
That kept my foot on the gas.

Lines flew by at breathtaking speed
Forming a single, unintelligible blur of motion.
Not that I bothered to notice or care.

I was faced with two choices—
Either make the turn
Or risk the consequences.

If the former was chosen all would be well.
I’d follow the road that’s been given
And proceed as normal.

However, I could disregard the screaming
Protruding from the back of my mind
And ignore all peripherals.

My steel cage would surely rip apart,
Glass spewing in all directions
Offering little promise for safety.

Some might call it reckless,
Dangerous, foolhardy, even suicidal,
But a higher purpose was at stake.

It was now time for a decision
Yet still I hesitated
Until it blindsided me in the face.

I finally knew what I had to do.

Breathing deep
I gripped the wheel tight
And braced for impact.
