(30 November 1667 – 19 October 1745 / Dublin)

Time Passed Us By

Side-by-side we sit
In the movie hall
Though hand in hand
But the mood is peculiar.
Hands entwined, hearts scarred
The picture looks perfect
But the story is all wrong.

Holding on, yet far away.
Lost is a precious thing as we
Pretend to walk on the love way.
The trick of eyes
And flutter of heart
The sensational love is now
Playing invisible tricks.

Side-by-side we sit
In the movie hall
Though hand in hand
But something is wrong.
The movie song goes on mute
The video goes blank
And our hands untwine.

Time just passed us by
Traveled somewhere else
Where two hearts meet
While our nest it abandons.

…Time just passed us by
Oceans welling up in the eye
As we realize that time just passed us by.

an old trick: to give words to a thing
A peck of troubles for a coach. Excellent humor and a pleasure to read.
