Time collapses

Time collapses in the blink of any eye leaving only fragments. Years pass between seeing some, and they age before your eyes or dissappear. I'm not even familiar with that face in the mirror. The older we get the fewer brain snapshots taken and like a movie with missing frames, time seems to accelerate.

Sometimes I stare monotonously at a moment just to reset my bearings, for time leaves us all behind & marches ever on. We can't hold back the ocean but we can live here & now, one foot in front of the other and day after another. Only in death are we free, for time is not the keeper of dead men, dead men are free in anonymity.
