In Less Than the Blink of Two Eyes Perhaps


In Less Than the Blink of Two Eyes Perhaps


there is an ache, I cannot describe

a pain contained, so deep inside ..


yet still, as a river aches for the sea

then I too do ache, for your company


and so, for a time we are immortal

then gone quick, like a lightening flash ..


yes, in a shutter speed if lucky, tho’ less

than the blink, of two eyes perhaps ..

      Yes, two eyes - how can we blink with just one eye and not with the other eye?! Unless we only got one eye of course - call me Nelson.
      I must know these things! lol.

        Aye Aye Cap'n O 🚢⚓:)

          I thought of Long John Silver at first, but that was one leg, not one eye. Doh!

        • L. B. Mek

          deity or happenstance's chance
          what ever designed our heart's
          had too much trust, in us
          since it forgot to include that turnstile
          swing door, valves
          for all those, who visit our life
          convincing us
          they'll be by our side, forevermore
          but yet disappear, in but a blink...
          tis why
          my cherished friend, fool that I am
          force you, to put up
          with my overzealous ways
          and cringe worthy words
          life's bitter aftertaste, has thought me
          to never take 'a tomorrow'
          for granted
          (I read and learn, dear wise Poet)

            What more could an old fella possibly want more than being spoilt thus .. blushes, bows & swiftly exits 🙂

          • Fay Slimm.

            Full of appealing metaphor this verse of lament for more time than a blink when together - -- yes mon ami --- mem'ries seem all that it leaves - - such an emotive read..................x

            • Neville

              many thank you's winging their way to your door Fay .. x

            • Christina8

              Such an emotional write! Time goes by entirely too quickly, doesn't it? I think it is brilliant! Saved to my favs...C

              • Neville

                Bless those pretty little purple petals of yours C .... and thank you bountifully .. N

                Yep - Nice to have me.... too late ; I'll start earlier next time....

                • Neville

                  sometimes your crypticism does not become you until later in the day ... perhaps
