seconds (out)

once a man, like the sea I raged,
once a woman, like the earth I gave

lyrics from the cinema show, seconds out, genesis



seconds are infinitesimal counting down seconds out but wait stop all the clocks what the hell is time anyway roll back the clock fast forward freeze frame pause seconds out

  1. the image – the quote/lines and your poem – really captures and essence … fleeting …. still … a rush …and it works so well together …. a sense of urgency … and the way you chose to present your thoughts – reads very stream of consciousness and it works to emphasize the feelings and sensations – really digging this Andy πŸ™‚
