The slow tide of time

There lies a sadness
which lingers
Hovering over my heart
Hiding within my soul
And it haunts me
Both day and night

A cloud of stillness
Sitting on the face of time
Applying resistance to hands
Reaching out for the future

Seconds are dragged
Held hostage to the present
Minutes that trickle
Into stagnant hours
Flecked with fragments of gloom
Of despair

So I sit
And I wait
For the inevitable change
Which never ever comes

  1. I can really relate to this one. I have very similar feelings. I’ve often felt that I have been afflicted with the eternal sadness. I know I am the only one to be able to change how I feel but I can’t find the means to do so.
