Time on the Road

Many roads lead nowhere
Leave no prints in the sand
Don’t forget those that lead somewhere
Regards to newly found land

Detached from time and hearth

The devils live together here
With clipped wings, zero wins
A sigil with a hero’s fear
Lies within it’s lesser twin

What is done is done, ok

Freeze that thought, leave that path
Seldom do I follow sense
Incur the wrath, a true bloodbath
Awaits me and all with one pence

Gold for the ferryman

Beyond the blackened sea
Beyond the river Styx
No path here but double fee
Enough for one less than six

My night ends here

Day begins, and what it brings
It never tells until I flip
These cards and then I’m stringed
It’ll get the chance to watch me blip

Time is my last friend

It remembers all too well
Freezing those it doth recount
Each time I stoop too low to dwell
Within its halls and hear it taunt
