Speed Of Time

Rating: 4.8
If I'd been into rhyme
as my lover slowly died
I would have rhymed
how slowly passes time.

Being into time's speed,
for one 'slowly' or the other or both,
substitute 'relatively quickly'
and see the effect of that deed.

The poem is significant when people say, " I don't have time" , and at the same time some others ay, " My time is moving slowly" . It's all the mind that has to pace with the time

A nice poem on relativity of time. It's a debate whether we follow the time's speed or time follows our speed.

To me, time can pass, or seem to pass, either quickly or slowly, depending on the activity in which we are involved. A most astute poem.

A stunning poem about the absolutes of life-time and death. A minimalist poem that still says a lot.

There is an element of relativity in the passing of time through various phases of life. A fascinating poem with a tinge of sadness. Thanks.

The abstract relationship between death and time when a loved one is dying, there is no slow and peaceful death or quick and painless death, just death; slow, relatively quickly or otherwise. Though a painful subject your play on words and concepts brilliantly captured in this write.
