Time Again
-Ron Smith

That greatest of sins
Like a wave washing ashore
Clouding the mind
And purging the soul.
Time;
Skewered by perception,
Tainted
By all that was.
Look me in the eyes
And tell me you don't care,
So I can spit on you
With all my contempt.
Time;
Polluted by life.
Hatred,
The darkness within.
A clock on the wall
A watch on each wrist
I can tell you the time
But my scars persist.
Time;
Skewered by perception,
Tainted
By all that was.
Tell me again
Why you've finally come.
I stopped believing in you
Along with my God.
Time;
Polluted by life.
Hatred,
The darkness within.
I've pulled myself in,
And closed you out.
Is that why you're here now?
Is that why I fear?
Time;
At the speed of light,
Perception
The great divide.
Some live so long,
Others die young.
I am trapped in my mind
Living my lie.
Living subdued
Till by nature I've died.
