Hourglass

A Poem by Splatman73
"

I was feeling things and attempted to put those emotions into words.

"
One of these days I need to just stop and cry
       Because there’s a lot inside me and
              When it’s about to overflow
                 I should pour some out.
                   Sadness mixes with
                          Happiness,
                            Memory,
                              Love,
                              Hope
                            Dreams
                         Future plans
                     Become present
                    Actions and in the                                               Blink
                   Of an eye all of it is
                  Gone, Beyond reach,
                Now only some illusions
              Captured by a false eye or
          Real ones that distort the reality
That I once held in my heart and mind with joy.

Author's Note

You know, looking back at it, the poem fits more in the shape of a pedestal. Oh well. This is my first poem on here. I was going for a shape poem. Any thoughts are appreciated even though poetry isn't really my thing. 0

Very creative structure. Time is a vast, difficult topic. All that we are is what we've done and experienced within a set amount of time. Very unique way of written about an abstract topic.

I like the creativity. It's rich and pure, and structured uniquely (especially the random "blink"). Nice work.

Nice flow visually as well as verbally...has a tad of spoken word genetics to it in a way..
I love the "blink" out there...works perfectly

I like to write fantasy and most of what I publish will probably be unfinished or first drafts. My writing also tends to be really long so fair warning there. If you write Magical Fantasy please let m.. more..
