Forever


Oh time
You walk always
In front of me
In your crawling shadow
You hide me somewhere
Perhaps you could hide me
Here forever
But beware
I may break your shadow
And fly to eternity.

    Tiny, but power packed! I love this, the idea of never being satisfied - not even with forever. That is human nature for sure, blessed with forever but still seeking eternity lol. A captivating write! ^^

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
