Quick Sand Of Time - Poem by R.K Das

I sink into oblivion
On the quicksand of Time
As neither violet nor gray shade
Hold any good.

The fragrance and flower
The aroma and earth
No more hold any good
As I sink into the quicksand of Time.

The youth and age
No more hold any good
As the opening note of the lullaby
And the closing note of the dirge
Sound jarring to my ears
As I sink into the quicksand of Time.

    No one can pull you out of the quick sands of time, can't even slow them down, but we have a memory to look back on time with, so try to make those memories good and enjoy the time you do have rather than worrying about its passing. Put it in an egg timer if need be, but don't burry yourself prematurely by it. That is where your poem took me. i enjoyed it and it made me think. (Report) Reply

    ‘Four stages of life’
    are of inconsequence
    love or hate just futile
    As the swamp of Time
    Pulls me into its womb...
