Favorite Quote:
The greatest truth in life is that those you love, cherish or simply trust the most are irrevocably destined to break you the most.

These wounds shall come to pass.
They fade—
in and out—
more and more—
each day.
As time passes.

Problem is…

Time freezes,
without you.
I stay suspended,
forced to live in the pain,
not with it.
And if time cannot move without you—
these wounds shall never heal.

Question is…

Can I—
shall I—
will I—
stay suspended regardless?

Let myself continue to suffer,
for the sole gift—
of holding on…
to what we were?

Or do I let you fade…
time, re-begin…
and life, without you,
carry on?

The author's comments:
Despite the fact they bare the same name…my poem has nothing to do with the Ke$ha song. On the contrary, the title is merely meant to accentuate the metaphors of time. It also serves as a time stamp, because I (coincidentally) wrote this during the song’s peak of fame.
