STRESSED OUT



The Sunday Muse #88


Thank you Carrie for this interesting prompt, designed to stimulate our cerebral hemispheres.



STRESSED OUT


I cannot face you yet, for the hour has not arrived.
Time marches on relentlessly, never ceasing and without compassion.
Could it be an eternity since we were united and in total harmony?
Maybe in just a few minutes, at noon, or perhaps at midnight,
time will dictate our appointed hour when at last I can face you.
Whether it is this day, tomorrow or next year I know not.
Or maybe never, but I dwell in eternal hope.

Each hour, each minute, each second we had together
was so precious, yet regrettably I cannot put the clock back
or redial to recapture those precious moments, now but treasured memories.
Could it be you find forgiveness in your heart?
Have I not already paid a heavy price?
Or do you want more, yet more lacerations of my heart?
The stress of losing your soul is overbearing.
So hopeless, so final, yet there is always hope within my heart.
Perhaps the forward arrow of time will be kind.
Maybe one day happiness may wander into our lives once more.

Until then 
each second that slowly ticks away amplifies my expectations.
