Killing Time

I take a step forward

As the heavy weight of the past

Falls beneath the floor board

Where fears and dreams are cast.

The clock ticks twice

As another memory crosses my brain.

I have no time to calculate price

Or catch the next train.

I am simply here.

A body killing time.

Placed in a space

I cannot call mine.

The clock strikes twice more

Before I reach it.

Just as the tide reaches the shore

Another puzzle to fit.

I take my eye of the clock

And continue to step

Oh, the difference it made

To take a timeless trip.
