    Where Time Takes

    Take a stroll out late at night
    Watch the waves bring in the calm
    Sparkling from the pale moonlight
    They slow then leave to where they're from

    But they aren't as friendly as they seem
    Note the grains they take, all sly
    And one day there will be
    Not one left for them to hide

    And watch that face glow in the sky
    But don't fall victim to it's tales
    For it's the cause of this tide
    And someday nothing will be well

    But it won't be quite as bad as it seems
    Go somewhere else to pass the time
    But from there you will see
    Another thief to tell you lies

    But keep your chin up, raise it high
    Find some good in all the grey
    And don't let life pass you by
    As harsh the words others say

    But they aren't just trying to be mean
    They just share the regrets they find
    Bitter fury can fuel the steam
    And your apathy will fade with time

    Just please don't end up like me
    Not all feelings can fade alright
    Beneath this shells a pain to be
    And the ticking time is the tide

      As with how Blue Monk put it, this piece of writing feels heavily antiquated, with portions of profound and rare sincerity. However, this piece has also formed itself upon the hapless suggestion that success follows a definitive pathway, rather than blazing a significant trail. Not to criticize your work with indifference, I mean only to suggest a continued interest in refining your approach. If I were of some authority to say so, I believe you write with potential, with effort, you should not change this.

    Here is an example, from your piece: (lines 9-12)

    "And watch that face glow in the sky
    But don't fall victim to it's tales
    For it's the cause of this tide
    And someday nothing will be well"

    Your words appear misplaced, or controlled, and do not contribute as the majority of your piece does.

    My question to you is, what other choices or options were you considering for line 12? Perhaps you do not agree, but in my opinion, this line simply does not fit as written. Thanks for sharing.

      This has kind of an old, classy touch to it. I like the directive approach which draws you on a little bit. Not in keeping with any strict rhyme setup but it works ok. We could almost call it "What Time Takes" instead of "Where..."

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
