Two Weeks Notice

The clock strikes once
The clock strikes twice
Shadows of words
Hanging in the air
Flickers of cuneiform
Spanning thousands of years
Panorama of time and space
Drawings in a cave
Whispers of a heart
Vacuum of time
Holding you and me.
Trusting love again.
But not seeing the
Eyes of a storm.
Sounds of something 
That was there before. 
Faux pas
The lost spark
Of an illusion.
