TIME TELLS


TIME TELLS

S.JENSEN © 2018 ALTERED FROM 2014

THE BROKEN CIRCLE

OF SILVER AND BLACK

STYLIZED WAVES

IN A CROOKED PATTERN

WHERE TEARS FALL

AND ARE CAUGHT

LIKE RAINDROPS

TO THE BEAT

THROUGH YEARS

OF LINED PAPERS

WITH WORDS

ETCHED IN

ALL EMOTIONS

CHOSEN TO

FRAME JUST

A FEW IN

THE WALLS OF INK

SO WILL

IT BE REMEMBERED

SO IT WILL

BE RELEASED

INTO THE SOLACE

IN ALL THE RANGES

TO THE WORD

A PURPOSE

LOST ON

THE SORROWED POWER

THE ENDLESS

SILENCE WITH

A DESIRED WILL

OH THE LOST

BEACONS CALL

AND FALSE PRETENSES

LEFT NO OTHER

CHOICE

OH THE RAGE

OF KARMIC DESTINY

BURIED IN

THE AMBER FLAMES

TO MY CLOUDED

TIME TELLS

ITS FINAL MOMENTS

AS THE DOORS

CLOSE

AND I AM NOT

THERE

BATTLING FATE

IN THE LINES

OF NO WAY

TO CHANGE

THIS FATED ALTER

STATE

LYRICS NEVER

WRITTEN

IN TIME

AND SPACE

SONGS NEVER

EXCHANGED

CUT INTO THIS

CHEST

PASSED ALL

MY GUARDED WALLS

LIKE SLICING ICE

WITH A WARM

BLADE

THE VELLUM

TO THIS NOW

PERSONAL ALE

NEVER FILLED

NEVER SHARED

NEVER SEEN

NOR HEARD

IN THE BROKEN SPOT

TO THIS

NOW UNFORGIVEN

CHALLENGE

OH NOT EVERYTHING

APPLIED

TO JUST THE ONE

YET NONE

MAKES A DIFFERENCE

NOW ALL LOST

OH SO MANY

DIFFERENT EMOTIONS

ON THOSE PAGES

LONG AGO

STIRRED IN THE INVISIBLE

UNKNOWNS

MY HIDDEN

SAFETY OF

NEITHER THERE

NOR HERE

LEFT THERE

IN ALL THEIR GLORY

TORN AND STAINED

IN THE BOX

FILLED UP HIGH

AND HALF LOST

HALF BROKEN

HALF GONE

BITS AND PIECES

OF THOUGHTS

MYSTERY OF

MY OTHERSIDED

TRUTHS

THE MARBLE PEARL

STONE IN A SEA

OF MARBLES

TO MY MEAD HORN

LOCKED

IN EMPTY SHADES

OF VALHALLA DREAMS

THAT WELL

OF MIMIR

TIRED IN THE

RETIRED TREADS

MY BEGINNING

AND MY ENDING

THE ROCKY ROAD

OF A INNER JOURNEY

AND

OUTER PERSPECTIVES

THEY NEVER SEE

THE GENIUS

ONLY MADNESS

LIKE SHARPENING

A STONE TO THE BLADE

NEVER USED

RECYCLED CIRCLES

IN AN ENDLESS

WANT

TO BREAKOUT

ONCE GIVEN

NOW BROKEN

IN THE VEILS

OF ONE’S SELF.
