Will you be my hourglass? With the breaking of the dawn On a table in my lawn Watching the time drown Then flip you upside down As the hours pass. Will you be my hourglass? I know you are mocking me Telling me I am not free Yet, these shackles are so poetic Turning me into a masochist The way you harass. Will you be my hourglass? I watch me in your hollow As you pour the time you swallow Me under the layer of grime Trying to catch the sand and climb A vicious Mirage. Will you be my hourglass? Will I be before the dusk? Break you in pieces and crush Or with the setting Sun You’ll still be watching me burn Someday, Alas! Will you be my hourglass?
