All We Had Was Time

 All we had was time;

there was so much of it to fill

and so little of it left to waste;

each frozen moment passed this path,

much lost and reaching for the light;

given up to mouth, torn from our eyes,

fingers slipped; pushed away in pain,

limp sheets, clung to cold bodies,

hearts elsewhere; hiding in the jaws of wolves;

sand from the hourglass filling lungs and ears;

falling between us-

Cementing space.
