"Your dreams only become intangible when you stop reaching" ~me ;)


Time

There's nothing
you can do to change it

No amount of longing
can bring it back
or speed it up

Helplessly

We must sit back
and watch

As hours turn to minutes
minutes to hours
and hours to days

Years

Pass in time
That feels like only a week

Sometimes
you lose track
or even attention

But whether you count,

or not
it's always

Ticking furiously,
endlessly
no arythmia to confuse it

Life's predator,

it stalks
and numbers...

and kills
and yet,
still is not satisfied

unstoppable

stealthy,
and dangerous

it has no weakness
not even predictability
gives us leverage.

On New Year's,

we celebrate it,
glorify it...

even anticipate.
Forget
what it is

Tick-Tock

a ravenous monster
with a call

That haunts your sleep
Tick Tick Tick Tick
in rythm with your heart

Befriending it

until it wins the battle
as always

It knows when your time
is up
awake or not

in a...

nightmare
or or daydream

or when your wide awake
it will strike
it will kill

Time...





Up.


The author's comments:
I wrote this in a 1 2 3 pattern. I did that just to give the theme that you can't change time a little more definition. i wanted to personify time and i guess i sorta turned it into a villian. Personally, I think this is one of my best. Enjoy. And feedback would be greatly appreciated!
