Time is a feeling No matter how much one tries To measure and quantify With hour glass, sun dial, clock It is as much a feeling As it is a concept of space You feel time more than you read it.
When you're enjoying it Time moves fast When you're in "prison" It moves at snail’s pace When there's so much to do There's not enough time to do it in When there's nothing to do There's too much time on hand.
Time is a feeling You feel time Catalyzed by your emotions When you’re happy Time is short When you’re sad Time drags on When you’re pressed for it There’s not enough of it.
In melancholia, Time devours Creating a psychological expanse Barren of joy Teeming with sorrow Longing for it to end Only lengthens its torturous grip. In love, Time devours Creating a flurry of warmth Savouring, shortens the spell Time compresses And ends all too soon Taking you with it Or placing you on a path anew.
