Favorite Quote:
"A poor life this if, so full of care
We have no time to stand and stare."

I’ve finally caught you.

You, who has skirt tailed around me,
Driving my thoughts into knots
Years turn to decades…
Decades to eternity

But no, I’ve finally caught you.

You’re trapped now – there’s nowhere to run from or to
I’ll swoop down upon you, faster than you can blink
Steal you away in the silent night,
Let my black vapor warm your cool face…

Yes, I’ve finally caught you.

Your clock ticks faster when the hand goes backward
Just as a cock crows twice for morning
There I’ll be to quell all desires, all concessions:
Lure you in with my corruptive cadence…

And then….

At last, I’ll’ve finally caught you.

I don't want to give this poem a title because I want people to think about what it could possibly be about...though I'm quite sure it's obvious :P
