like smoldering ashes of a fire
swirling in the night
these thoughts of the past
burn in my mind

youthful memories
that stagnate in time
the temptation of one so cold
a vengeful storm waiting to collide
with the breaking of hearts and lives

the fire blazes faster
and consumes all it touches
until its last dying flame

a new light on the horizon
seems warm and tender
softly caressing all it touches
through time it slowly fades away to expose
the terrible lies beneath its dying glow

the truth revealed
these ugly creatures
mascarading as beautiful butterflies
are scattered in the wind
they fool the eyes
they fool the heart
and all they return is wasted time

Love heals everything

awesome poem, kellticwarrior.
i am always thrilled when i find i buried treasure in these archives.

as hard as i tried to savour the seconds, and utilize the years i've been given, i must still confess to time management inefficiency.

for example, all the time i spent wasted, was time wasted.

if only i could get back all the time that i have wasted in one big block.

if i can't remember... did it really happen?

here is a gift of poetry.

The Clock of Life

The clock of life is wound but once
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop,
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more.
To lose one's soul is such a loss
As no man can restore.

The present only is our own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in 'tomorrow'
For the clock may then be still.

I really like this one keltic ... it's very evocative,
and brings up the strangest visions of fairytale whimsy
and ancient barbaric cruelty.
Experience is a brutal teacher.
