I spoke to you and you answered
Because time punished you
Because every breath you take is
seconds
hours
days
eternity
My voice the wind chimes
Clanking obnoxiously in your breath
Clouding your plane without horizons
Chilling the summer days you embraced
All that's left is a shadow
Darkened face, green drawn from your eyes
you dark silhouette
But every breath I take is negative time, retract
seconds
hours
eternity
shadows
I tried to steal time but all I got was your answer
A failed criminal
And there goes reality
Walking towards the bus stop
Awaiting the funeral of wasted breath
