'You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair - the sense that you can never completely put on the page what's in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.'

Stephen King

I look into your eyes
Knowing it is time
I squeeze your hand as I wipe a tear off your face

The sand is against us
Each grain weighing a ton

Thump. Thump.

I don't want to say goodbye.
I don't want to find someone else.

I hate that stupid sound
The hollow echo of time working and accelerating
Father Time must be jealous if he is taking you away from me

I fight a sob as your hand goes limp
Your eyes no longer see
The monitor no longer has rhythm

Time, what did he do to offend you so much?

He was my one and only


I am sad and lonely
