The Nuances in Time

Suddenly.
I am intelligently intoxicated.

Rushing.
This hollow city has over-crowded.
Enigma.
I stay blind, but my eyes open.
Serendipity.
I speak and I wound my throat.

Time and time again
I fill these voids
with an echo for a chance
to prove myself.

Time ages me; and
like a dandelion’s petals
the scales slowly fall off
my eyes.

I exhaust my words,
and my mind filters for more.
I try to stand,
but my lungs try to halt.

Time flutters erratically
and I dwindle on its delicate thread;
seeking for a pilgrimage
that I can call home.

I am deaf
but in these nuances,
I am heard.
