Zero Hour

Poem By Brian Hinckley

Time, the gentle killer,
ebbs and flows with inhuman determination.
We fight day after day trying to slow its passage,
yet day after day the grains fall through our hands.

Run and run through Time's never-ending halls,
the ticks of seconds and the chimes of hours sound all around you.
Run and run yet never take a single step,
Time held you fast with the grip of death.

Take what you have left and forge ahead with your head held high,
Time is patient, ever vigilant, and will wait for you when the last grain drops.
With a gentle grip and eternal eyes guiding your last step,
you will finally make your way down that infinite hallway to your next great adventure.

Eyes Of Envy

I watch you kiss him;
holding him like he was me.

With Cold Eyes You Judge Me

With cold eyes you judge me,
casting guilt and hurt in my teeth.
You burn me with words,
freeze me with your touch.

Full Circle

I turn my back
for just a moment.
I can see you
and the tears in your eyes.

Her Face

Her face
shining in the dead of night.
Her soul
shining to keep the light.

Angel Of Love

I walk empty halls
feeling oppressive loneliness.
My mind dark and empty;
save one thought.

Emerald Dream

I walk down
emerald halls,
floors covered in moss.
