To Snap

Like a rubber band pulled too taut
the snap is brief and mostly painless
She could feel the desperation
once overwhelming her system
flow out of her like a rushing river
Replaced with ice
chilling her to the bone
As her fragile grip
on that instinctual struggle for survival
lessen
with each passing second
Dwindling away to nothingness
