you precious villain

who steals my life away,

upon your shoulder life passes.

Elements change.

All organisms die.

All substances merge

and, as themselves,

exist no more.

Grasses convert to rock,

rock to sand,

and sand to the abrasive

that carves the earth.

Carves its beauty.

Carves its destruction.

Carves its changes

over seemingly endless

Expanses set in time.

Time, you villain,

you steal my life away.

Author's Notes:
Time wounds all heels.
Time heals all wounds.
How do you live your life?
