A little poem about time passing



In the blink of an eye
time passes.
worlds collide,
disintegrate,
disappear.
Leaving only dust.

And who's to say
it was worth it or not.
feelings.
thoughts,
memories go,
In the blink of an eye.

You are so right, especially if there are accidents, explosions, natural disasters, the world really comes to a stand still or changes irreversibly- in that one blink!
Thought provoking stuff!
Though I would have loved to elaborate on it...
I think you have inspired me to write something about, what all can happen in the blink of an eye... hmm... interesting!
Love,
Zoya

Hello Ms. Chrissy. This is a classy little write and no mistake. Deserves to be nibbed. Perhaps you should change the genre to 'prose' as the nibbers seem to be ignoring poems at the moment. Disgraceful behaviour! At least we have Bernard. Ahem. They can shove their nibs up their editorial arses. Good day! Hello? (-;

Sunken,
many thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this and much thanks for the Bernard, truly appreciated.
As for nibs in arses, sounds a bit painful to me.
