Timely Essence

Running out of time
To look you in the eyes
Life draining out of me
Time just flies

Out the window and brushes your cheek
Just a section of insanity
Of the wide open world we live in
All the piety and the profanity

Spread out in the wide open spaces of the pastures
And the cramped closures of city houses
The little things of hope and good
And the small things that arouses

The most enormous feelings built up inside
Like a concrete wall ten feet thick
Only in me do I confide
The rest of the world sealed off

Relocated to this small town
From an average sized city
Time rolling by slowly in this fragment of the world
Sometimes just being clever and witty

Scampering to finish what I started
A long time ago in that city I was born and raised
Existence flowing into me from the earth
Time is just another slowing craze

This is wonderful! I especially love the first half... don't I know the feeling well. XD It's accurately portrayed, in an interesting, fresh way... I love your vocabulary, metaphors, prashing. Great job! ^_^

Time the great revealer of all things. The healer of all things. "People talk about killing time while time slowly kills them".

"Time is the fire in which we burn." You see time as a bit more active during the course of your life. Good point.
