Death of a child

    - It happened quickly without warning or sound

Living this lifestyle I am now bound

   - To live life as if it was an ice sculpture melting at the seems

Why do I face it when I can drown in my dreams in my sleep?

   - Is it hope of redemption or greatness or sheer will

Is it yearning for happiness for my heart to be filled?

  - What happened to the old me talkative and sweet?

When being around others was considered a treat

   - Was it a hallucination, a trap or maybe a ruse?

Where did all the good times go, I’m so confused

    - School and work and the occasional situation

From this stressed filled schedule I need a vacation

   - But adult good times are coming but not for a while

I say “adult” because I’ve experienced the death of a child

    This poem is relatable. I've had to grow up quick. My parents believe in taking up the role of someone years older at a young age. So the childhood I had , though carefree, was very brief.

        Have you written a poem with Time as a theme. Time is such a curious thing, I feel you could say a thousands words to describe it but you'd never have enough. I've also always found it quite amusing to write about.
