We can’t see it
We can barely hear it
Yet we feel it; pushing and crushing.
Time. We think we have it, but with the blink of an
eye, it’s gone.
Lives haunted by the tick tock of the crocodile clock.
Vessels disguised as bodies; flimsy bone wrapped
in flesh slabs and skin scraps.
Time. It’s almost up.
With the blink of an eye we are forced to say
Souls are timeless. They know no bounds; infinitely
fearless of the tick tock of the crocodile clock.
We can’t see them
We barely hear them
Yet we feel them; with all our heart and soul.

About the Author
Laura is thirty-something and was born and raised in a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ village in rural England, UK. She emigrated to the USA a little over two years ago, married the love of her life in her dream Las Vegas wedding, and now resides in Los Angeles, California with her husband, in a little shack by the beach.
Laura believes that animals have the best souls, and dreams of a day where extinction is extinct. She hates suffering of any kind and is a gentle soul. She is the oldest child she knows and still believes in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. She is yet to stroke a unicorn, talk with a mermaid, and hunt for vampires, but these things are on her bucket list. Laura has faith in the power of prayer, is convinced that tiny miracles happen countless times a day and believes in magic. She finds witchcraft intriguing and would like to bottle sunshine to cure gloomy days. She is a compulsive bookworm and will not leave the house without her kindle.
