am I on time?

as a fractured heart

seeks its muse

in the bright light

of emptiness

in the quiet

of silent shouts


ripping through

hold me now

this may be it

this may be all

as I release my breath

from trapped exhaustive


am I on time?

when my future

has always been so late

glancing to the horizon

is the sun


or is it rising?

am I forgiven

or forgotten?

when love is elusive

am I on time?
