Time, Unwavering – Lauralee Adrien

Here I stand

unwillingly suspended

between two eternities.

One, unreachable, impalpable in nature.

Another, lingering, inciting memories of pain

or beauty, or happiness, or love

residing in the caverns of my psyche.

The future and the past.

But then, there is now–

so fleeting in its embrace,

yet ensnaring when acknowledged.

Wedged between two eternities spent before and after:

moments spent in cafes,

theaters, shopping malls, streets–

steps I’ve taken

retraced back to prior lives.

So foolish, then, to think

that I matter so much.
