Even when my body is still,
I find myself moving.
The slowly ebbing water,
gently lapping against me.

It is my lover;
one I can never divorce.
It owns me.

Never moving backward,
always moving with the flow.
I go forward,
caught in it’s momentum.

As the water passes,
I slowly crumble away
and fade.
It takes with it,
everything I am.

Even in my death,
time owns me.
I cannot go back
nor be remade.

Those who love me,
will hold  in memory,
but they to will erode with time.
Then my dissolution will be complete.

Time is a cruel mistress.
