Time’s Elegy (Duet)


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
