Taking Back Time

Taking Back Time


Today passes like a ticking bomb,

one that will certainly explode.

Yet I find myself strangely calm

while trying to crack a foreign code.

Disarm attempts were a mistake;

tension mounting as I tried

and wasted time, now mine to take

as I interpret the danger inside.

It spins a web inside my mind,

a trap that I can clearly see

and focus on until I find

a new fate among the debris.

My time, no longer a real threat

crawls forward, not revealing how

in time I surely will forget

the volatility here and now.
