*topic** There is never enough time
by Kimberly Bare
as the realization rises
that for all the plans
and passive ways of pretending
that it will be alright
i've already fallen through the cracks
to splinter into thousands
of reverberating reprimands
and offhand gestures
the hands of time continually...
and i'm still waiting for the alarm to sound
Author's Note: thanks to Wiley Otis for the topic!
