Life falls upon me

Like seconds dripping from a clock

The steady tapping metronome

I am stretched, pulled hard

In the elongated moments

The silence between each drop

Becomes an unlived lifetime

Fade memories of red and blue

Mix to a purplish haze

Awash in the forgotten days

Where the sands of time

Erase the traces of where I have been

The past struck blind in folly

The taste of wishes and want to be’s

Turn stale and crumble in decay

Blown in the winds of yesterdays

I am written in the ancient runes

Of a language no longer spoken

    Nicely written and powerful, I think we all get those feelings on some days my friend. You still have a lifetime ahead of you, of that I feel certain. Big hugs, Jonikins
