If you are standing at a station of my life
As a witness, jury or judge
You might presume I stand still
Since I am forever in a speed test
A race with time on tracks that run parallel
Time, a non-stop Maglev
Me, a rusty steam engine of old,
to refill with coal,
to let off steam.
then running again.
running simultaneously on different tracks
tracks named mother, daughter, wife, work, addiction, pleasure, dreams,
feeling every second like being stretched on a wooden rack
while time jogs on indifferently.
