I couldn't decide whether it was "time was" or "time were", but I felt "time was" would make more sense as time is personified here. xD

If Time was Kind

June 20, 2017


I do not like the lines
that cut across my heart.
They are big.
They are ugly!
Mummy said scars fade over time --
she lied!
Why must time be so cruel?
Why must time let me remember?

I want prettier, more delicate traces.
I want to choose differently shaped scars
if time was kind.
If time was kind,
if time was kind,
I would choose the lines
and draw them again.

Time, are you listening?
