time out

time out

A Poem by thumbelina
"

I have no idea what I'm on about in this poem.

"
They slip in, and out.
In, and out.
And out...
And out...

Return.

Shadows of the dawn.
Silence,
Screams,
Scratching with crystal claws.

Catalyst,
Creating fog and mist,
Persist!
Persistence wears thin.

Grating against chalk board minds
INSANITY...
This is merely one perception
Of reality.

How long before
The hour glass times out?
How long before?
Time is out.

This reminded me a bit of the mortal Instrument series, not sure why, but great writing. :)
