Wordle #293 – In the Mirror.

Mirror, toss/tossing, troubled, clock, dawn, after, willing, unceasing, stairs, brow, turning, creaking

I tossed a casual glance at the mirror.

I was troubled. I found it troubling.

The clock behind me reminded me that time moves on

The dawn will emerge from the darkness

Day will dawn and after many hours

Willing time to slow down

I realise it’s unceasing plodding on.

I rush up the stairs to rescue my childhood,

The sweat on my brow drips down my face

And turning to look back I hear a creaking on the stairs

It frightens me; my past catching up with me.

    That is quite chilling to think of the creaking is our past catching up with us! Great use of the words.

    I’m convinced, Michael, that time goes faster the older you get. Wasn’t it only Easter last week? 🤔
