I have fractured time
Taken it apart into a billion little pieces
And scattered them into the winds.
Where once I could chronicle
Now time is everywhere and nowhere.
Now there will never be a ‘right time’
And we will never ‘run out of time’.
It had to be done:
The tick tock of days passing
Tested my sanity
And my patience.
When? When? When?
Not now. Not now. Not now.
So I took time apart
Deconstructed the regimented cogs
And made yesterday a tomorrow
And tomorrow a today
And never always
And some day a certainty.
I dwell in the spaces of fractured time
Remembering: we have already met.
