SPIRALLING OUT OF TIME

By gentry3951
Thank you for your votes, comment and awards for " THE INTERVIEW " I didn't get the job.

A few years ago there was a site called ADOBE LABS which had all beta programmes and tools on it and this was one of them. When they closed the site the only thing that was saved was the OIL PAINTING tool.

Spiralling Out Of Time
I have traveled through this decaying land,
filled with brass skies, and hardened clay,
for knowledge that I will never know,
and wisdom that's far from my reach.

The hands of time spiral around itself,
choking the past, yearning for the future;
the ticking of the coming dawn,
wrapped up in a dreamless slumber.

Time travels onwards, never looking back,
turns the green herb to fragile dust,
turns the smooth skin of youth
into experienced wrinkles of the wise.

Chasing away the shadows from the sundial,
as the evening hides the sun in clouds of rain;
spiraling towards a destination not predicted,
unknown to a fading, forgotten generation.

Spiralling out of time, out of control,
trying to catch up with the speed of life;
in the blink of an eye the future becomes the past,
never to reclaim it's glorious throne again

Forever ticking until the pendulum stops,
as the last gasps of life fill the air;
nothing but the echo of a haunting chime,
the final strike of midnight splits the sky
