If only I could turn back time
To live forever in the hours when
I felt my heart was most alive
Lovely eleven to two a.m.
When sky is painted darkest blue
Memories of sunset burn my eyes
The moon is promising peace renewed
And all the world seems soft and kind.
Though it seems so dark I feel so full
Of colors so bright and vivid and endless
I skate along in this gentle lull
For a moment all my sorrow feels painless.
But to my chagrin the clock ticks on while
I remain wrapped in dreams of magenta
Others march towards the denouement
Their lives passing by like dusty novellas.
