Its Time...Always About Time

Its Time...Always About Time

A Poem by Angelheaded Hipster
"

Listening to the rain, talking to the butterfly, and WHAM! I get inspired...

"
I am infatuated with how time clicks
on by us, never stopping to see
if we are pleased with its progress

I like that it's cold, distant,
non judgmental on the victims
it picks and chooses...time,
I think, is closely related
to death, that old card cheating
b*****d.  I think time is, or should be,
at the very least, beautiful, graceful,
and so very malicious, like an evil
stepmother right out of a Disney movie.

These two, our daring duo,
I see them playing poker
only instead of chips, they
barter with lives, souls, and spirits.
In a way, I like their indifference
to our sufferings, to our happiness,
to our loves and our losses.

Makes the game we're playing with them
a little more interesting, a little more
mischievous, and I thank my grandmother
for teaching me how to play poker,
cause when the time comes to play
my hand, I know I can bluff better
than the old man can.

Time and love make fools of us all. Have you ever read Stephen King's, My Pretty Pony? It's a metaphor given to him by his grandfather about the passing of time...I think (considering the content of this piece) that you would love it. I'm fifty years old today...so this piece held special relevance for me. In the end there's no cheating death for any of us and we all have to cash in our chips. But I'll play until the last hand is dealt or I've lost everything (whichever comes first)...I enjoyed the read sweetheart and as my younger friend Paul used to say, "Love is the only redemption"...and perhaps it's the only way to leave any winnings behind for others to pick up our cards at the table. Bless you. F.

Wrote a poem once about how the tocks are louder than the ticks and how I found that to be a seriously mucked up wrong, wrong. But I like the image of you playing with poker - leaves a question with us as to whether you can ever win that game. Maybe the stakes are overly high?

In a way, I like their indifference
to our sufferings, to our happiness,
to our loves and our losses.

A logical way of looking at things, not allowing for emotion, only cold indifference...beautiful prose here doll, and wonderful to read. Thanks for sharing...

What an interesting way to look at time... "Only time lasts forever" making it immortal and therefore better then us... it never waits for us nor stops when we need it to. I never knew time could be so evil.
