For Whom the Hour Tolls
By: Adam M. Snow

 

For whom the hour tolls,
beyond the smoke and mirrors;
the speeding of devoted souls,
perching, like a somber crow-
on time itself, afraid to go.

 

Entranced by a tune of many flaws,
the child we are, like an ant in a labyrinth.
A victim to its own laws,
aging with time not the hour;
a life like a gentle flower.

 

Like sands from an hourglass, we fall,
with no purpose, but that of our own.
In our dreams we see it all,
the tragedy of this world has befallen,
the great of man has fallen.

 

For love, we do not mourn the loss of man,
in the wake of time itself.
We mourn the lies that once did stand,
in the hopes of what sorrow may bring,
a tragedy of a king.

This is so sad, and beautifully heartfelt, you did a good job, on writing this precise write, to deal with the grief and intense pain, you've faced lately, the ending gave me shivers, a very intense piece of true friendship, and writing my friend.

Deep and dark, rather Poe-esque. You have a good grasp of wording and flow in this piece - well done!

It reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe's writings. I have an unfinished poem about time, but I like yours better. This can easily become a treasured classic within the folds of futuristic time. Kudos!

I can't stop from saying, 'wow'! This is brilliant both in form and in content, seems I am reading from a page of a poetry book of a master from the past.

A amazing poem my friend. I like the use of the crow. A bird of mystery.
"Entranced by a tune of many flaws,

The above lines were my favorite. Sometime I feel like a watcher. Just watching life and death like a crow. Having no part of the chaos of the world. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Thanks my good friend, for your kind review
Hi Adam. A beautiful and heartfelt write about fear and sorrow of our life journey affected by time. Well crafted free style metered rhyming poetry which I enjoy. Good presentation; thought provoking. Good imagery and descriptives. Vivid visuals that any reader can appreciate. Nice use of metaphor and simile. Flow is good as is the line to line transition and breaks. Very nice rhythm. Rhyme is good as is the unique rhyme scheme. Lovely depth of feeling; bittersweet and lamentful. I especially like the second verse. Good word choice. Nice use of repetition for emphasis of feeling. Well penned and a good read. Write on!
