It is time

It must be time
why else are we so driven
to reveal what we’ve been shown
it’s because there’s more to all of this
than time alone has shown
time mirrored into doubles and quadrupled into go
time swirling and unfurling like a vortex in the flow
time ripping through the veils of separation from our fates
time merging worlds and promised lands
and kingdoms with their mates
the body of my knowledge bursts the body of my flesh
but time, relentless, hears the cry, the hungry human wish
time, seeking its own timelessness
speaks visions through our lips
and tells us we are time’s endeared and long-awaited ships
