Suddenly Reaching the Waterfall

Like a road that ends in a sudden barrier.
Or a bridge that collapses just
as you reach it.  Or maybe it’s only a door
that always stood open but is now
firmly locked.  You thought
you had time to explore
every highway and biway, every meandering
small lane at whichever hour
of whatever day or night you pleased.

Yet don’t pretend such surprise.
Everyone always mentioned
an ending.  You never doubted their
word.  Just you didn’t expect it
quite like this, or quite
so soon.
