Potential

Potential

 

She had so much of it,

potential,

a word of potency

power

capacity

quality.

 

She had too much of it

potential,

an energy

of mass destruction to

her own psyche.

 

She felt the weight of it,

potential,

expectation

acceleration towards

that which she could never

amount to.

 

She wanted to fulfill it,

potential,

the dangling carrot

it kept her going

but always left her

wanting more.

A dangerous word,

potential.
