You are the universe experiencing itself

My time spent alone,

It isn’t sad or blue.

It is simply time alone,

Although it’s spent with you.

Time is funny in her ways.

And like a god,

You can choose to believe in her mysterious waves.

And I ask myself,

When I’m alone,

If time were alive,

Her birth yet known,

Would she be a friendly one?

I ponder her existence.

Your eyes hold the answer,

Not for the world,

But for me.

As I read into their pools,

I try to decipher time’s purpose,

Before I become time herself.

Love me when I'm with my lonesome self,

Love me when I'm alone,

To save me from falling into time’s captive drone.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Very full of depth. A amazingly written poem.Thanks for sharing this!

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

This is really deep and poetic! Great job on the personification by the way :)
