There must be Time for a Lack of It

Poetry By: Don George

The assignment is this:
Write a short piece (poem, story, memoir, or prose poem) in which you use lots of inverted syntax. Make your piece about a situation that is upside down, or tell it from a perspective that is the opposite of what we expect.
Could you (please) give me feedback as to whether you think this fits or not ?

There must be Time for a Lack of It

I went for a walk one day and I stumbled upon myself.

All the while, I was actually looking for someone else.

A day in the park, created a spark.

Although the journey at first was gentle enough, little did I know it was soon to get rough.

Hair curling

Whispers swirling

Brightness falling on an endless calling

Nevermore to keep track the score

If you win, I do too.

Together we can't lose.

One and won don't make two

When you are me and I am you

A little

A lot

A tick

A tock

A pebble

A spot

A skip

A clock

A map

A road

An Earth

A globe

Now it's getting dark and we're not in the park.

It's getting late but we have no date.

The thing that has changed is that I am not just me.

When you came along, I became we.
