Desolation

“They say that “time assuages,”-
Time never did assuage;
An actual suffering strengthens,
As sinews do with age.

Time is a test of trouble,
But not a remedy.”
-Dickinson


You
Are
Old now.
I watched you
Sleep today, counted your wrinkles.
And ascertained the width between pain and wisdom,
Added the spaces in a lifetime. A longing between desire and destiny remains.

Well isn't the longing the fun part?
You wouldn't like to bump in your destiny tomorrow morning,would you?
and there lies the fact that time is the test of life.I presume,probably

You are free to construe it any wat you like.

For once I felt I understood the post much to my amazement, but sadly not.
Watching a lot of Bollywood melodrama has repercussions....

Yes. Yes. I will miss having you around.

Bollywood rocks. Repercussions or not. A friend was telling me the rnbdj storyline. Comedy total.
