It Was My Time Poem by Lee Degnan

It Was My Time

Rating: 5.0

ears ringing
it's all drowned out anyway
from the hum of my car
as it accelerates,
to the constant
of the last time we spoke

eyes stinging
like salt in a wound
I can't see the road because
tears do that I guess
yet I push my car
to go faster
by racing away from reality

heart leaping
as all shuts down around me
I'm no longer gripping the wheel
or this life
I've wanted done
I've so sought, so is found

I admire gifted poets like you who can use words (effortless) to show the intensity of one's emotion when fueled by painful memory. You're certainly my favorite Lee.

Powerfully stunning piece, young lady...You could feel the travestic build-up as it was so very well architected by well as the mellifluous structure that cascaded ssmoothly throughout...Another gem, my friend! ~ ~ ~

This poem touched me so much when I first read it. There are different ways to interpret it, and yet, I have the strange feeling that everyone who has read this poem understands it and relates to it as if it were their own experience. Very well written. Be proud of it. -Jade
