i love poems with meanings to them. And all of your poems seem to have meaning. (Not that I have read all your poems but you get my drift) Thank You for writing such wonderful poems.

Amazing. This really makes me think about time and how little we have of it.

I love how you compare blood and time, because blood is what makes a human live, and without being alive, time would have no meaning... And life does only have a meaning if you use your time well and don't waste your life... At least this is how I understand your poem - just my personal thoughts about it. Great poem, I love it!

Good. Very inquisitive and thought provoking. Your write though it's not as emotional as the rest. I think I like it more when you write emotional stuff but hey this was still great.-Press

I believe we are about 21 grams...

That's how much weight "disappears" when we die...

of blood and time.

Also, another clarification. Because I'm too lazy to go through the whole documnet editing and chapter replacement etc etc. I just wanted to let you know that because of the flexible nature of poetry combined with philosophy you can interpret this however you want. Time does flow like liquid. Also, it can be said that since the very moment we are born we are slowly dying, so is there not a steady trickle of life seeping out of us? And what better to portray life seeping away then with blood? Very open to interpretation I heel and I am very glad to hear your opinions and thoughts. Feel free to share and thanks so much to those of you that do.

i like the first stanza as a personification of time as something liquid. especially the "splash". time is most definitely fluid and always flowing, so you make a great point. when i came to the second stanza, though, the "slowly seeping through the cracks" made me think that the narrator was physically dying because of the blood conotations. might just wanna make that a little more clear, because by the time i got to the end i realized you didn't mean he was actually stabbed or something. oh well, could just be me. anyways. i like the life/time comparisons. interesting little write.

I like the though provoking images you give us here, particularly, "It's sand a brilliant shade of red." Then you compare time to blood which is interesting but a tad confusing when you switch immediately to "it is what gives our lives meaning/ giving our actions merit and value." if blood did the same thing than that comparison would be much more effective, but instead it's kind of confusing. And then time gives our lives meaning but it only has the meaning that we give it? Is this meant to be so circular? I like the fourth stanza, as it accurately portrays how even a person concentrating on how time is trickling away is letting it go without meaning. Interesting poem with good word choice and flow. The thought process is a little flawed though.
