ASSASSIN

Are you aware you're being stalked by an
                                                              ASSASSIN?
Will he put a gun to your head and pull the trigger?
Or maybe run you down as you cross the street?
Oh no,
        not he,
               not this ASSASSIN -
his unique modus operandi is far more subtle than that.


He will creep up on you by degrees.
You'll have no inkling he's even there -
                                                         he's much too wily to be rumbled,
                                                                                                           this ASSASSIN!
(And much too clever)



And please don't fool yourself
that you can hide
                        from the likes of him:
for he will find you
                           wherever you go,
                                                  make no mistake of that.



In fact, he's killing you slowly
                                             even as you read this,
                                                                            your ASSASSIN.
"Well, does he at least have a name?"
                                                     I hear you ask.
                                                                        Indeed he does.

It is..............."TIME."

  5. incredibly done my precious friend Ygraine :)

    i wanted to jump to the end as i read first stanza to find out the name of my enemy but i kept patience and reached to end

    how wisely you mentioned it through your powerful expressions my friend !

    yes he is indeed ,how he eats up all of us quietly and stays himself forever :(

    to fight it back only one thing i think STAY POSITIVE AND STRONG to make him feel defeated and unsuccessful in his mission :)
    hugs!!!

  10. Ahhh, that circular hurricane of each clock's face, "quickly swirled" here in this wimpy-time, sort of senryu. Smiles. _m

    time flies on its wind
    then quickly becomes too swirled
