THE SANDS OF TIME LIKE WATER DROPS
ARE BRIEF SECONDS DRIPPING BY.
THEY ARE HEARTBEATS FOR MY LOVED ONE.
OR THE TEAR DROPS I HAVE CRIED.

THE VAPORS FROM THE OCEAN,
RISING STEAM THAT DISAPPEARS.
LIKE BREEZES BRUSHING BY US,
UNSEEN, UNHEARD BY EARS.

EACH BREATH I TAKE IS ONE LESS,
FROM THE ALLOTTED DAM OF TIME.
MY RIVERíS GETTING BARREN.
LIKE A BOTTLE OF SPILLED WINE.

WHAT IS A LIFE WHEN PONDERED?
WILL THE WORLD GIVE US A THOUGHT,
WHEN OUR JOURNEY IS CONCLUDED,
AND A MEMORY IS ALL THEYíVE GOT?

FOR ME I WAS ASTONISHED,
KNOWING THE LIFE THAT I HAD LED.
I WAS FORGOTTEN VERY MUCH BEFORE,
THE REPORTS TELLING I WAS DEAD. [comments] => 1 [counter] => 109 [topic] => 13 [informant] => robert_edgar_burns [notes] => [ihome] => 0 [alanguage] => [acomm] => 0 [haspoll] => 0 [pollID] => 0 [score] => 0 [ratings] => 0 [editpoem] => 1 [associated] => [topicname] => DarkPoetry )

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
