The unbearable urgency of life - haiku

words, weighted down
burdened with life's urgency
waiting to fly

maybe I should 
jump out of life's speeding train
into nothingness

caught as I am in 
this tale of my own making
like a moth

bedazzled by the 
illusion of light and life
flying towards death

as silence waits, 
still, underneath all things
warm and welcoming
