Past Is Now

The future now the past
Row backward days
Carving craven figures into borrowed skin,

Stolen time, fractured words
Painting damaged being
With artificial strokes
Of light&blood,

We were walking through the night alone
Your side was my side, were we lost in this together

Writing lines of pages voiceless to say

Carving craven figures into borrowed eyes
Rows a backward day
The past is now the future;

This poem breathes in its own allure. Somehow like it has happened before in the future but already ground broken in the past. Today is yesterday too soon. Thanks for sharing. /Rik.
