When Time came knocking....

Updated on January 9, 2012

First Flight


My Poetry Thoughts

I haven't been writing poetry long, but wanted to send a few out to all my fan(s).I am a English Literature student and only became interested in poetry when my class began to study it. Now I have found my passion. This is the start of a long line of poetry that I will put forth on these pages. Please enjoy.

When Time came Knocking....

I was startled and surprised when

Time came and knocked on my door.

That's when I paused Curiously

as I walked across the apartment floor.

At first I was afraid,

But then turned quite sore

When I saw that it was Time

who was standing there on the fore.

Why was Time here and now,Wrong place,

Wrong time. It couldn't be right

for time to be knocking now

And giving me such a fright.

The thoughts started racing

like cars through my mind

When I looked him in the face

It all seemed to un-wind

I felt I had just started

on this fine life to dine

It couldn't be over

This great feast of mine

But Time stood and smiled

as I opened the door

then he said, I'm sorry

I'm on the wrong floor.
