Hourglass
It washes over me as tide onto shore,
Colliding with the boundary of reason.
These fears erode my fragile hopes
Leaving only grains -
Too few to build sandcastles,
Too many to forget
How each one might shine
With the smallest ray of light.
Is it my fate to dance in a  spectrum of colour
Or simply float away with the breeze?
I'm falling through the hourglass,
Just passing time.
