Step To The Beat

 

The spinning of time,

The rhythm of years,

Pushing and stretching the gateways of sleep,

The yawning tomorrows,

Shining and gleaming,

And treasures all dusty in yesterday’s keep.

Time immemorial,

Suspended and hanging,

Time rushing forwards,

Never look back,

Minutes and seconds,

Tick-tocking hours,

We march to the beat of the time tripping track.

Crowds pushing inwards,

Crowds pushing outwards,

The backs of a thousand heads with no face.

Each step where another has stepped just before us,

Stepping right into another steps place.

Step inside step inside step without thinking,

Step inside step on your blood-blistered feet,

Step inside step inside step without sleeping 

The drummer is drumming,

Come step to the beat.

  1. This has such a fabulous rhythm which perfectly reflects the subject matter. The poem builds brilliant and I particularly like the last five lines! Is this one of your campnano ones? #Theprompt

  2. This is so good! I’ve read it several times now and I love it. So many lines that I love, ‘pushing and stretching the gateways of sleep’ and ‘the back of a thousand heads with no face’, amazing imagery! Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x
