no rhythm to keep

Cover Image

an urgent torrent of foreboding air tears
through the blood streams of my heart
time is conspiring
planning in ends
it will not linger for courage or eloquence
it is selfish and cruel with no rhythm to keep
there is no compassion or sympathy to bear
it refuses to slow or even to pause
for a moment a memory a whisper a thought
this fear is urgent
and it scares me sober
that time may lose patience
with me or with you
