Tick Tock

Only time decides

when you begin

and when you end.

Only time lets us grow

closer together

and heals the wrongs of the past

Only time wears away


and stubborn scars,

Like stains on the skin

and mind


Only time is afraid

of being wasted

when being wasted

passes time

and heals

the pain.

Clarity tries to grow old


But only time

knows the shame

of the game

of life.
