time

It doesn’t happen quickly: it happens at a rate of one second per second: the rate of life: a rate well-defined. How long does it take to get everything you want? Never. How long does it take to achieve your dreams? One deep night of so sweet so sound sleep.

It doesn’t happen quickly: it happens all at once: the chance of putting a name to a face: the chance of remembering what it means to be saved. How long does it take to get everything you want? An instant. How long does it take to achieve your dreams? First sight.

What futures follow? A struggle. Forgetting. Giving up. Moving on. Setting out. Starting over. Starting over once again. It happens in an instant. An instant so soon lost. The gentle cadence of time. So slow, so indifferent. Always moving forward. Always giving up the past.
