Time after time, it come and goes, never ends or dies

Experimental Fiction

Slithering, stalking,
predatory time
hunting like an
irrepressible lizard.

Creeping, crawling,
inexorable progress
measured in passing
seconds, days and years.

Tracking, tracing,
haunting each day
with it’s quest
to capture and devour.

Challenging, chasing,
days remaining less
than those gone by
stolen by pursuing beast.

Inescapable, inexplicable,
medical powers useless,
spiritual beliefs fail,
in the face of its influence.

Enclosing, embracing,
it’s final hold
revealing to all
that time is life’s constant companion.
