Time Carnivorous

Time carnivorous never ceases licking lips,

Biting away at me

it rips

me off

bit by bit,

thought by thought,

in chore and bore.

Tomorrow slithers by,

drooling over today’s mistakes,

gorging on yesterday’s ideals.

Feeding in frenzy

sucking sweet seconds

milking my marrow.

If I don’t watch it,

it’ll gut me.

If I do,

it’ll drain me.


I’m telling time:

“Go swallow your own tail

and get off mine!”

Once and for all,

As far as time goes,

one thing


I know:

when it comes to my heart,

the clock stops here.
