Suffocation in the mirror of time....

please don’t look at me
with those sharpened eyes
trying to find fault
a flaw inside
sand is filling up
the well in your clock
where hands
cease to manipulate
chasing futile dreams
into dark and muddy waters
sifting and searching
like a longing through the mist
rolling blankets over stolen time

now I must slip away
into the darkness of the night
as easily as I started
counting my time like ripples
on the river shore
looking back to see
your eyes staring at me
like the shattering of glass
the mirror of our destiny
cracked like pavements
starving of juices from above

I’m breathing the dust of the desert sun
wanting desperately
to breathe life in new waters
time has run out….
as clouds circle and yell
screeching out
for a fresh beginning
where the sands of time
don’t interfere with the clock
when the reflection in the mirror
knows it’s time to not to stop….

Suffocation in the mirror of time....
