Wait?

Wait?

A Chapter by Shy Joe

motionless, thoughts go flying
stay or go
will this affect your long term goals?

the "here and now"
compared to the "there and how"

the steps you take ripple the the fabric of time
every beat of your heart, vibrates, and loosens the strands
sit to long, the dinner bell rings
wrapped in her web, stuck in place
closing in on the pray too suck the life away

tick tick tick she never stops
lurking around waiting for your trip
one step wrong you will feel the nip
the venom of a mistake
slowing you down, there is no escape

and now you're late...why did you wait?

How I imagine time and the choices we make with it. Feels like a good write for October.

" and now you're late...why did you wait? "
well it would seem that it's one thing to say these words to one's self, and another to see them written down directed to you... they have a more powerful effect. Beautiful poem, time and choices is something that has been constantly on my mind...
