Time ticks slowly; suffering feels like an eternity.

Prescient Moment

 

Tick –

a javelin pierces

twisting deep;

a gasp, a grasp, a roar –

not as a magnificent lion,

the whole of his jungle a

conquest, but as an untenable

recluse, a solitary sentry –

sounding silent, rooted

bellows constrained within

a waning wishing wall –

entry to a recognized eternity

Tock –
