Painfully outstretched with all her might

The world spins, doggedly, day and night

Time powers the main wheel in the universe

Stopping the clock hands, trying for reverse

Halcyon days we can’t persuade to last

Savoring the moments that dissolved too fast

On a lone corner, watching the world on parade

The sound of bored hearts beating a serenade

Dinner places served with empty plates

Calendar pages lacking any claimed dates

Booking a ticket for an long ago duration

The second hand stops, looks like a staycation
