Time, you cheat!

Death emotes different feelings…

Intimate, passive, casual…

Wails, silent sobs and perfunctory words…

Not only in relation to the dead

But with over the same ilk, over time.

Yesterday’s death fails to draw out a tear

Yesterdays sacrifice, weighs downy now

Time develops a cataract in our eyes and perceptions

To turn a colossal Statue into a film of sepia,

Into a wafer thin image, then on to a vacuous memory.



  1. Sunamu, this is so beautiful… I hate the fact that time has this effect on our mourning, making us seem callous… and the last three lines say it all!
