The Time Thief

Stole a bit of time.

Tricked the machine

into giving up a moment.

Something just for me.

Of course,

it wasn’t perfect,

we are all flawed

by degrees,

but a moment’s peace

in this world,

is priceless,

I believe.


Never long enough,

there is only one rest

that comes to take us.


not yet

No time to forget

Now is the time for waking.

Come up out of

your little nest.

Time to clear your mind.

Time to clear head.

Stole a moment;

now we wake the dead.

We need all of the help

we can get.
