Slipped Through My Fingers

A long road to travel........

It just slipped through my fingers

I allowed it to-

My ears heard words

Important information

Yet, it slipped through my fingers

I wasn’t really listening

There was something missing!

Reality and logic took a sudden leave of absence

A part of me had shut down

It just slipped through my fingers

A strange shift in appearances

All the while, a sense of fear hung in the air

I had chosen to ignore

Time was the enemy

Almost sneering whilst watching us

Watching, while it all just slipped away

Watching, while it all just slipped through my fingers

I will never forget

But will always regret

What I should have hung on to
