shadow

Eugene S.

my shadow cast across the sands of a place that used to be
one shadow, one sun, one place by the sea
but hasn't it always been this way
a life based on illusions that this world had to bring
a forward stance, a hope, a song that I must sing
to fall into niches of circumstance, to learn lessons of loss, hatred, deceit
and discover the ways of this world perpetually stuck on repeat
it just keeps going
tick, tick, tick, tick
sands flowing, none knowing
the end of the lonely road
rocks, the keepers of time
holding the distant past
slowly eroding, no hope
just going, forward, tick, tick, tick
counting hours, years, eons, just going
on and on, laying on an unseen fabric
held beautifully, cradled delicately, but eroding
never knowing, always going, never knowing
i stare at the sands of time
at a place that used to be
beneath a fading shadow, and a setting sun
may my sands find their peace
