And Still The World Spins - Poem by Alexzia Ferdinand

i'm alone now says
the heavy thickened silence
echoing around me
quickening my pace

the clouds move on says
the gently padding snow
covering my footsteps
softening this face

the moon continues rising says
the beams in reverence
it cannot, will not stop
the stars, it's simple tears

time refuses ceasing says
the hollow, bitter ticking
the clock within admitting
his deepest, lonely fears

And still the World spins
on it's dizzying track
filling in the spaces
and never looking back

    The movement of time is as sure as the movement of shadows or the rising and setting of the sun. Cheers for your rich imagination. A very original mind is at work here.

    Warm regards,
