Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


wishing for magic
in a physical world
doesn’t just double down
on the impossible –
there goes another
precious moment
of unrecoverable life.
my clock is ticking.
in a blink,
it will all be gone.
i don’t have time
for what can never be.
there is a story
that needs telling,
a dream
to be lived.
