The snapping sound of Time

Dear snapping sound of Time

please let me rest a few

moments of eternity

without you.

Oh! Always the constant tic of your pace

beating your rhythm

around my waist

thinning the air in my head

pulling each memory

as an elastic hair

that from time to time

snaps in my face.


Because you Time

you are not a wave

you are not imagination

or my creation only

you are hard

you are solid rock

against my sea

and I try to rebel


and free myself from your curse

of always making me

look back

look forward

anxious to leave

where I cannot leave

anxious to arrive

where I can never

definitively arrive.


Oh please, Time

please leave me alone.

But don’t forget to come back

because I am most afraid

of being on my own.
