Existential Assassination

Seasons thoroughly
swindle time from my
hourglass existence,
fusing grains
into glass,
adding more to
what isn’t
than to what is,
forcing a wry
smile from my face
as I daydream of
their mortality

Every now and again
I think to shatter the
but to what end?
Can the bones of time ever
truly be broken?

Can the timeless be
taught my pain?
Can the future forgive
the past?

(This is part of a collaborative poetic effort between myself and CMRSYK1985: Make sure and check out his blog by visiting The Brown Bag Special.)

  1. Cool shit, man. Keep it up!

  2. Some of these are truly priceless….adding more to
    what isn’t
    than to what is,
    I could put that into so many different situations and have it make sense. Unfortunately it is futile to battle time.

    Philosophy and the age old tyrant of time. Two subjects that are definitely intriguing.
    Great collaboration Benjamin. I’ll have to check out Christopher’s blog.
    How are you doing anyhow?
