The watchmaker

I cannot confine you
Within hands and gears
Your pace is confident
And your ticking is clear

You painfully crawl
While I need to forget
And you run way too fast
If I need some rest

Cause you choose your pace
While you walk away
Your rules are my spell
But I have to obey.

    That was beautifully logical…which leads me to a confession. Now I’m no whiz at poetry. Often I wonder what exactly I’m reading about. I’m learning that sometimes a poem has two meanings. Plato’s good at doing that! And so I’m wondering if this is one if those poems that has a hidden meaning. Lordy! You guys are going to have to edumacate me! (As much as I hate to appear stupid, I think it’s more important to be learning!) 😦

      You know, sweet Calen, I am no whiz at poetry either. And the meaning will be your favorite one πŸ™‚ anyway I was thinking about our relationship with time and this came out… Much love, HC

    Oh! Wonderful! I’m totally on board with what you said. But I think my “watch” is running fast all the time now. At least it feels that way once I passed that 60 mark! So many things to do and experience, so little time (and money…:( ). (Thanks for the poetry instruction. πŸ˜€ )

        This was on a night talk show a month or 2 ago. Then I googled and found a whole bunch more. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      I am afraid my body obeys anyway, despite of my mind’s will… πŸ˜‰ ❀
