The End Of Everything - Poem by Lynn Grassette

Familiar drops
Drip from my eyes,
And skies are lit
Like lantern lights

Sanity slips
Strange shadows rise.
It's time to quit
Can't keep these ties

Time loses grip,
I grasp my mind.
Though nothings left
Love might survive

    Apologies for the duff info in the last comment: the title of the Browne song is 'The Times You've Come'. Meant to come back before this, but was waiting for something new. I see you're working on Today, through every T. Good work Lin! jim (Report) Reply

    'But the need for love will still remain' sang Jackson Browne in 'Sing My Songs to Me'. A very fine sentiment to echo. Hard hitting brevity that doesn't squeeze the sadness out. Strong writing again Lin. jim x (Report) Reply
