Countless Time This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

March 30, 2008
Watch time dissolve at the end of the day
Reflects one’s life as it ticks away
And every second that is wasted
Brings doubt, spite, and hatred
For regrets darken the blow
And he who wastes life
Is his own foe
Time is the thief of life
Promises turn out to be lies
Ephemeral like a unicorn dancing under a rainbow
Or a snowflake on the lashes of my eyes
I feel like I’m living in dream time
As the moments keep dancing away
I run and time keeps slipping away from me
As the hours keep turning to days
And the clock, it just keeps on ticking
As the rainbows and snowflakes fade away

i love the fact that you make your readers gace the reality that the moments of their days are ticking away and they can do nothing to stop it. Awesome job; love the way you write.
