Time’s Illusions

Time’s Illusions

267

Broken, twisted, bent out of shape

fading memories tell a strange tale…

joy projected brighter, more poignant, highlighted with a crimson pen

murky smudges drawn over with a dull veil…

see how slyly Time paints

mocking, laughing, deceiving with faulty sketches of moments now stale…

O heart take heed of Time’s Illusion

that makes the bygones gleam so bright and the ‘now’ appear so pale…
