My Last Loss I’m looking forward to it and dreading it

My Last Loss

I’m looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. After a long life of accumulated regrets and losses, there’s one final loss waiting for me. It can’t be avoided, and I’ve had plenty of time to consider what must ultimately become of me. The worst torture of life might be the knowing that you’ll die.

There’s one consolation. It will be my last loss.

I wish I hadn't included the sentence, "The worst torture of life might be the knowing that you'll die." That pinpoints the topic in the way that a pin pinpoints the surface of a balloon. It lets all the air out of the paragraph. It would have been so much more clever and artistic to let the reader collect the parts and realize the topic by their summation. Oh, well. Please pretend that I were the kind of writer that had left that sentence out.
