2017 Poetry Marathon, Hour Three: Eternity now

Third poem of the day.

I’m not sure how I feel
about eternity now

As an escape, it’s flawed
because you can never come back

As a feeling, it’s frustrating
because sometimes you just want to get on with it

And what sort of eternity
are we talking about?

Is it forever and ever
or change is a constant?

Is there a difference?
Because I may need to bring a change of clothing

As for the timing
wouldn’t eternity now negate everything that came before?

I don’t know if I can go along with that
I have things to do
