Watching and Waiting

The wheels keep turning despite my gaze,
in crayon colors smeared;
While wanton signals rearrange,
their missives from the feared.

Slowly ticking hours away,
the hands of time retrieve;
Each mindful motion from my sight,
which preys on gross deceit.

An hourglass erases days,
in sands that silently fall;
And innocence comes full circle now,
from lying voices' call.

The never ending waiting game,
for fortune's fate to bend;
Increases renewed moments which,
are lost when my life ends.

Deceive the mind. But it's all happened at the same time. One moment interlocked in the whole. And what do I know.
Your right! Lol. P.s. I wrote a lot but it was flagged.

I saw that, Tracy, but whenever you're not 'posted' here, I look for your poems wherever I can find them. Still not sure what 'abuse' means, but mine used to get flagged a lot !! Thanks for your input, my friend !

Gone to fast when happy, crawls when you are low, Moments can feel a lifetime in true loves gaze. Waiting for my Kylie I too slowly tick the hours away. Peace Fran.
