When did you become so cruel, creeping up, surprising me, haunting me.

Tugging me and pushing me, controlling me.

Why don’t you compromise, or negotiate? Or even let me in?

Why am I nothing to you?

You never cease or show me anything to encourage peace.

You’re relentless and cruel and punishing. Always there, always you.

I can’t hide from you, you always find me. Everywhere I go, you’re there. In dreams, nightmares, waking and stillness. I can’t find a way to leave you behind.

Except one.

And when I take it, you’ll be vanquished and defeated. No longer pursuing me endlessly. No longer at my back and in front, you’ll be silent and stopped.

Then I’ll be the master of time.
