Most of it goes, time and the

faces of your loved ones. Hold on to

what is, nothing remains congruent

for longer than a human second.

  1. As sentient beings,

    we’ve been influenced within
    the laws,

    we’ve created for ourselves…

    Ifinn i was to follow,
    my new family law, society
    would crucify me…

    If not burn me by the stake….

    Silver ship.

  2. we hold on and keep holding on. Til that moment as our loved ones wants us to let go with a smile, and tells us “u will be here beside me, always.”

  3. Really nice- thanks a lot for all of your likes- means a lot! I feel like I’ve read quite a few posts on time today; I’m gonna try and write my own poem on this theme 🙂


  4. That feeling when you’re trying to catch a moment and capture it to keep forever but within minutes you can’t even picture the face staring back at you or the sunset in the background

  5. Looking forward to your next post,
    loved the image: it goes so well the context of
    your piece.
    Both combined gave me goosebumps! 🙂

  6. I wonder what a “human second” is, as opposed to just a “second”. But it’s poetry…should I even question?
