and will leave us always longing,
and will bring us always sadness…
Time’s foundations were created with such violence
that they’ve left us
For us to cling to time is vain and useless,
what we must surely do is learn to live,
because each moment offers us its newness,
to fill those precious minutes,
to brighten precious days,
to save our soul from imminent decay.
So now we scramble forward,
we’ll scratch the cold steel walls,
our prison chambers,
and drink our ice chilled beverage,
a sedative, or leverage?
We’re wishing to cheat time
while we innocently drink our silver wine…
Each step we take will leave its trace etched in the rocks of time.
we write our life in ink
you thought was fading in the dark,
was an illusion.
Nothing will be erased!
And in that minute when you thought all was forgotten,
it surfaces again.
There is no victim,
it’s just time
the killer of smiles that sits and patiently,
awaits for us to reach our final mile,
and then she opens wide her arms
and takes us…
