Time


Why do people say that time will heal us?
When with time, the wounds don't heal
The scars of the past only get etched deeper...
Why is it that the people fool themselves
By saying things will fall into place with time
'Time' - an extremely relative term it is
It only puts a veil over what's real
A barrier between what's true and what you have lost in the past
It puts a beautiful curtain on all that hurts
A fake world to live in
That is what time offers;
Lies to live with
and a person you cannot recognize
But who shares your name...
Time will bring before you all that.
Can it ever truly make you forget
All that you deeply desired,
All which your heart craved
No, it does not bring relief
And no, it never can heal us...
