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?
