By , Mount Horeb, WI
There's so little time, yet so much.
Time flashes before your eyes.
Just like lightning flashing out of the sky,
Lighting it up
Or
Bringing darker clouds in.

There is tragic death.
There are masculine tornadoes.
Even rapid car accidents.
Your body laying lifeless.
Drifting off into eternity.
You even can shed some tears.
In ten little seconds.

Laughing until you have tears of joy.
Taking in an elegant hug.
Receiving a passionate kiss.
Listening to powerful music.
In ten little seconds.

This is such a tragically beautiful poem. I like how short and to the point your sentences are, but they have so much impact in a few words.
