Eternity as a Second

Promise me this one thing
A promise for loves of the past
That ever as the seasons fade
And ever as the moon wanes
The truth of this shall last.

As you watch the shimmering stars
As they trickle down like rain
Show the gods that look from above
Surely now hope and truth
May overcome harsh pain.

You know the demons lurk there
In the shadows of the mind
Seeking to prey on your hope
Devour what you hold close
And take back the gift of Tyme.

You can hear the seconds fading
THe ticking of the clock
You feel the tug of Gods words
You see the edge of existance
And towards it you now walk.

Time sparkles like diamonds
Crystals of hope in the dark
Brief flashes of what we are
Our eternities are but seconds
And yet they leave our mark.

((Err... Not even sure where this came from. It was one of those random poems I woke up to find scibbled on a sheet of paper next to my bed. I sleep-write... o.0))

Usually the best poems come at random especially when you're sleeping. I love the concept of this. Time and eternity are such meaningful things. I love you use diamonds and crystals as metaphors for the passing second of time. If you want you my like my Eternity Rites poem, its kinda the same thing. I thought was beautiful and very well said. Great job.

Excellent write, I am glad I found your page. I will read more of your work. In the fourth paragraph, second line there is a little typo, no big deal. I really enjoyed this.

I really like this. It rhymes and flows effortlessly and very pleasantly, like it was from a higher source, with you the agent. Divine inspiration? Georgeous theme and idea.

Unlike Martin, I could see time as sparkling diamonds and hope as crystals illumating the darkness (hope shining in the darkness of despair). I thought the analogy was good.
