Time Not Sleeping by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Time not sleeping but forever creeping;

in shadowed dreams lies a crispy twisting;

Breathing to live while the blood is steeping,

the Sun exhales at last, alighting a Lunar mist.

As the heart beats the clock, the tick and the talk,

love burns with a heat, but cools with the cheat.

Never wishing to lose over darkened black hues,

Through a misty nights weeping shadows of blue.

Through the teary haze, affixing my gaze,

on a moon so bright in this cool twilight.

Love kind and true, gone now and ablaze,

time’s not sleeping, just creeping out of sight.

How starved your ego must have been,

to devour my heart with a treacherous grin.

For time’s not sleeping, but forever creeping,

Grasping for love, my conscious mind spins.
