Careless Time

by cassie hughes   Aug 8, 2014

If I could turn the hands upon my clock the other way
and move both you and I back to another day,
I'd never let you leave my side, this time I'd make you stay,
instead of giving up my heart to break in sorrows sway.

The time we spent together, 'twined in one anothers arms,
impatient with the need, to share each others charms,
will ever haunt my waking hours as I recall the balms
you blessed me with, to chase away all other angry harms.

Yet in my need I chased away the angel that you are.
Too lost within my own desires, I pushed too far
and in the end you couldn't take another selfish scar,
I didn't see until too late you were my guiding star.

So if I could I would erase the past and all I've done.
Take away the dark I brought and, give to you the sun,
but in my heart I know that all is lost and I'm alone,
and time will tick forever onwards, careless that it's won.
