Morning day
and black night sky;
A sudden twist,
a dip in time.

Life…

Holding onto
what's forgotten,
trying to keep
what's unwritten.

twisting…

Watching the world
pass you by,
remembering that boy
who made you cry.

turning…

Building a dream
to see it shatter,
steeling your spirit
so it doesn't matter.

dipping…

Achieving your goals
just to see them slip,
throwing the ball
only to miss.

falling…

Losing yourself
on this winding road,
finding out that
you don't know where to go.

loving…

Putting on an armor
since this is a harsh place,
fashioning it from iron
to protect your heart's fate.

learning…

Waiting as the sun sets
just to erase the day,
watching for the sunrise
so you can wait again.

ongoing.

A sudden twist
a dip in time –

and suddenly you are older.


A/N: see if you can make sense of this. I'm experimenting with poetry forms.
