Life's Rerun

by Katrina Thornley 6 months ago in surreal poetry

9/13/17

Life is mass-

A running tape,

Of collected images,

Sunsets to sunrise-

Nightmare

Through daydream sweat.

A collection

Of dust, dirt, seed

Pressed-composed

Until...Explosion!

In whirlwind

Of magical

Blood--fire--thought-

One-in-a-million-life time luck.

Heartbeat-Mimic clock tick tock-

Sand drip-drop-

Till...silence.

Deafening

Defining---

The running tape

Titled,

Cataloged

Two ends,

With case and lock--

Played once-

Once-in-a-lifetime-

Rewound in minds,

But never replayed.
