[01] Endless Time

Rating: 4.6

Time is flying towards infinity
As an unknown operating system.

I'm losing programs from my machine
C drive is formatting without command
I'm a tree beside the street
and time is walking in front of me
I'm screaming on and on without sound
refraining without barricade.

Sorrow is a small virus dark blue

Your poem reads like a movie scene, continuous... flowing, with really moving music in the background.... you write really well and it is way beyond time for me to give you this compliment.

Life is a continuous process in which loss and gain is the process as realizations occur when a loss occurs. This poem is full of deep thinking. In this poem the way you have compared things is also really very interesting.

Aristotle argues that time manifest itself in the change of things but the change itself is not time: “So time is either change or some aspect of change; and since it is not change, it must be some aspect of change” By expressing the concept of time and by using conceptual metaphors, eg 'What is existing or non-existing nothing can be shared '' and cognitive metaphors, eg ''Sorrow is a small virus dark blue spreading spores into my blood'' and visual metaphors, eg ''I’m a tree beside the street and time is walking in front of me '' the poet needs to prove that time can mean, in some conditions a change in itself.. genial poem...10++

While reading this poem I felt that I was sitting inside the 'Time Machine' of HG Wells and the control stick in fast forward motion....! 10+ -Raj Nandy
