Inside The Hourglass - Poem by V. Vagari

I’m bathing in the grains of time as they’re sifting
from above, until I secure what I hold dear, which
is my best friends love.

All around there are waves crashing down, and
their pushing has pulled me inside; and though I
keep holding on, as I’ve done for so long, I’ll soon
lose my fight to the tide.

When my soul idles down, the tide settles down,
and I find who I knew I’d adore; but as I walk down
the beach, with my true love in reach, I know that
I’ve been here before.

I’m bathing in the grains of time as they’re sifting
from above, until I secure what I hold dear, which
is my best friends love.
