Broken Time(piece)

- Repetition -

00:00:01 - Time

00:00:02 - Ever

00:00:01 - So

00:00:03 - Slowly moves

00:00:02 - And yet

00:00:04 - It sometimes seems

00:00:03 - As though time

00:00:05 - Is inching backwards

00:00:04 - With every

00:00:06 - Few jerky steps it takes.

00:00:05 - Like a broken watch

00:00:07 - Which, for every tick-tock,

00:00:06 - Takes one tiny tick back,

00:00:08 - Repeating, time and time again,

00:00:06 - That same moment just past,

00:00:07 - As though we are forever

00:00:05 - Stuck in a moment.

00:00:06 - But the future is now!

00:00:04 - It cannot be,

00:00:05 - That we've come so far,

00:00:03 - Only to,

00:00:04 - Take a few steps,

00:00:02 - Back through,

00:00:03 - Our dark past.

00:00:01 - We

00:00:02 - Must not...

00:00:01 - no...

00:00:00 - ...

Author's Note: ^^;; Sorry if this stinks; this weird idea just lept out at me when I was trying to finish up my Easter Break history project, and wouldn't leave me alone until I jotted it down. Aheh... heheh... Well, yeah... I was goin for a different syllable patterning... style thingy, and... yeah. Got lazy around eight, so stopped going higher than that. *grins sheepishly* Please be kind... or at least, don't deflate my ego too much, k? ^_^
