Light from the slit darkened
Alarming me of a known arrival
As I looked back and squinted
He’s there, though a little heavier
I searched his eyes
To know what he wanted this time
But they’re blank like a sea
With too much running inside
He tried taking it away, my rotten heart
My strength was brittle but I had a power to raft
It was a battle between present and past
I couldn’t give it as for me it’s all
I need time eternal, apparently for no reason
But it’s my future, it’s my vengeance.
Time, the god of deeds
The one that gives
And the one who takes
You play in its world
But with no retakes
Sometimes, it’s an evil in disguise
As you are bound to wait
Do you know when it started?
Or when will it end?
Its existence, a cloud in haze
Though tied around the wrist
it still slips down like a lie
Ah! It’s too less when you’re high
It’s said it’s precious
But isn’t it just a puzzle vicious?
