Eternity lies
Ahead of us and behind
Yet now never fades

Past immutable
Present inalienable
Future unwritten

Arena of wits
A fleeting chance, death from life
The weight of a stone

We sit together
World of men and world of dreams
The sides of a coin

Falling poetry
Formed torpid flawed or jaded
Defenestrated

The bardic faded
That's not what I meant at all
Exacerbated
