The Compression of Time

time1213

Lifetimes lived in seconds on a never-ending clock.
Timewarp through faces and moments —

first kiss,
leaving home,
finding love,
losing friends,
building life —
the wild ways unfold…

kiss home love loss life
kiss home love loss life
kiss home love loss life

So fleeting.

Memories overlap now as the years compound.
I hear the sound
of time collapsing in echoes across the water
until there is nothing but a hole in the ground.
