time

Time Heals?

In time’s waiting room,
All alone I ail,
Licking clean my wound,
Masked beneath my veil.

All alone I ail,
Salvation passes by,
Masked beneath my veil,
Time turns a blind eye.

Salvation passes by,
I choke upon the pain.
Time turns a blind eye,
As I go insane.

I choke upon the pain
In time’s waiting room.
As I go insane
Licking clean my wound.

Borrowed Time

A flower blooms
While a child cries.
A life is born
As an old man dies.

Life’s not given.
It is a loan.
It’s time we use,
But never own.

A privilege bestowed.
Something to cherish.
Spend it wisely,
For soon we all perish.

Then our children are left
With the life we once mused.
To make the most of existence
And time we once used.

Page Poetry

My second Alphabet Challenge inspired “P” post today! Granted Page Poetry is going to pale in comparison to Poe Poetry. However, given that my last name begins with the letter “P” and I write poetry, I couldn’t let Poe have all of the fun. Here are 4 short, individual pieces of Page Prose & Poetry:

Tell me that it is not
a figment of my imagination,
that it is more
than a fantasy.
If you cannot,
don’t wake me.
I rather like this dream.

**********

I long to be real.
I ache to be seen.
I wish to be more
Than trapped in your dream.

**********

Flicker of candlelight
In lovers eyes,
Glow of moonlight
On midnight skies,
Echo of starlight
On a placid sea,
You are the light
That illuminates me.

**********

A flower blooms.
A child cries.
A life is born
As an old man dies.
Life’s not given,
It is a loan.
It’s time we use
But never own.

If you missed my first “P” post from today, I featured my favorite poet/writer, Edgar Allan Poe. Check it out!
