Hourglass

Slowly, I watch the hours go by, in the hourglass, against my will,
step by step, in the void, I see the sand going down, with a life of
its own, and I wish time would return from the clock to me, myself.

The pale light of dawn falls into my palm, and then into the night, and
later, while the world sleeps, thoughts return as soft curling waves
hanging like a gleam of a lamp on my hazy veil, mirrored in my sea.

All colours fade away into the darkness, till the glass changes its shadow
falling upon the wall, my reflection, waiting to see myself at a remove,
as time slips past me, away from me, on its own in an hourglass above me.
