Poem: time as light

Poem: time as light

light seeps through the sides

breathing  / bleeding

              / /


in space and time

in one moment forever

your body bends and shapes it into something worthwhile

refraction of light on the face 

almost making you translucent

making you vulnerable 


you reach out to it

catch it in between your fingers

but it slips right through the cracks   



This poem uses light as a symbol for time and examines how quickly it can get away from us.
