Time & Sugar into Oblivion

by Rania Moallem   Nov 6, 2018


Time will not wrap itself back
into my pocket,
years lost will not be redesigned
to fit a new suit to custom
my tomorrows.

Dying within me.

I've lost it all with a glimpse
of an eye;
the innocence
the laughter
the pink circles on shirts,
lost the taste of ice cream
the flu of playing outside
as it rains.

Where is my happiness,
my faith,
the voices that I
can no longer hear.

And it's getting lonelier,
tougher & somehow darker
and a little bit colder.
Night is burying me-
wide awake,
allergic to slumber.

Then burying itself within
the cracks of my bones

Sleeplessness baking
my face, my looks,
drawing with black coal
all around my eyes.

Dreamless,
bored, breathing
in my bleak coma,
as more days get wasted...

irksome
irksome
irksome

nothing's going
to come back.

Time will not wrap itself back
into my pocket,
years lost will not be redesigned
to fit a new suit to custom
my tomorrows.

Dying within me,
it will all die with me.

    Your words once again can mean many things...we can't live in the past dear Nana...we can only preserve the good memories and sometimes we just have to accept the ones that were not so good...it's what makes us who we are after all :)

    What a sad version of time. Beautifully said:

    but doesn't it in our memory, reinventing itself through the different version of the the same incidents?!

    I love when poets deal with time in poetry. Poetry in my opinion provides the best angles to observe and understand temporality.
    Very well written Rania
