time slipping… {redux}

..

.

..

time

slipping through her

fingers as she

watched

numb

.frozen.  in place listening

to each minute

……………………..fall

…………………………away

unable to take the next step

her breath held in

anticipation

then………………..

silence

….

……………………………………………..outrage

stuck in her throat………………………

unable to get past her disbelief

…..

she

watched

as the tide carried

a seashell back out into the

ocean’s depths………..drowning…………..all

her

hopes

leaving only

fear and

….

anger

and

time just

kept slipping

through her fingers

..

………………………gone………………………forever………………….

Funny How Time Slips Away”    Wanda Jackson

written by Willie Nelson

lyrics ~

Well, hello there
Gee it’s been a long, long time
How am I doing?
Oh, I guess that I’m doing fine
It’s been so long now, and it seems like
It was only yesterday
Ain’t it funny, how time slips away?

How’s your new love?
I hope that she’s doing fine
Heard you told her
That you’d love her ’til the end of time
Now that’s the same thing that you told me
Seems like just the other day
Ain’t it funny, how time slips away?

I gotta go now
But I’ll be seeing you around
Don’t know when though
Never know when I’ll be back in town
But remember what I told you
That someday you’re going to pay
And it’s surprising how time slips away
