Horizon

How long has it been?
I’ve lost track of the days
Time is not something you can keep close
It is always horizon
Every now is instantly a back when
You have only just thought of touching the water before it becomes a thing of the past
and suddenly you are drowning

How time flies
it sings its lullabies to lull you into a loss of perception and then it darts away
How long have the days been? It’s never been here, just always there
and the moment you think it’s here, it’s already somewhere else
Don’t look over your shoulder now
and don’t look so far ahead
All you’ll see is horizon
but look down at the way the river rushes beneath your feet
at the way your socks soak with each moment that passes
Time is ever changing
and so are you
