captive of time

Yasmin “Yassy” Yaskhan Yes, Just Yes! Add another to her canon. A stunning example of wit, wisdom and tale-telling told in verse. She sometimes doesn’t call me Bruce – and I am sure The Jewett rejoices each time – Please read and know why I don’t mind.


like a haunting melody
an unsung canticle
aching to be heard
begging..a release from anguish
I kneel
in the emptiness of a barren silence
a captive of time
I cradle my hopes 
in the changing hues of eternity.
I lie down burned...
under sycamore skies
I give time a rebirth
my heart bewildered  
by time's inconsistency
       I kneel
and beg for time...
