Time’s Elegy

Pinterest image – unknown source


Tangled time forgotten in the mind’s eye

seconds tick–a wry wretched rhythm

a metronome of memories

methodically strafing

eviscerates the soul

but Khronos mourns none

mortal or god

shifting sands





weary dreams

the haunting past

sings sweet lullabies

mingled with salted ire

full life weighed in smiles and tears

the pendulum heart vacillates

hands of the clock untangling the web

time’s mocking epitaph seen clearly now
