Deep Dark Stacks
Study in last milli- second's race
geared up to level intense,
absolute survival tactic,
Loneliness of solitary focus,
solitary exam's challenge,
clock watching split second breaks,
then back to the pale turquoise lined
foolscap, blank page waiting.
Mind wandering back to those comforting lines of book shelves,
containing, all the knowledge of the world,
holding those answers I don't now remember,
or else, never even knew
in the first place.
