Teased Time is Tumultuous
Tick tock, the clocks a’ tickin’
Teasing us with promised time
All you’ve come to love and hate
Will disappear on a dime
We fool ourselves into lulled thinking
That time is on our side
But Time is a cruel mistress
And while we sleep, she glides
She strips away our wanton youth
And with every waking breath
We waste away our lives each day
Until the last moment, awaits death.
But when comes death, no one knows
Until fac’d in all her glory
She laughs as you needlessly struggle
Another one for her ne’erending story.
I seem to be churning them out lately.
