A poem about mental time dilation

“Must you destroy another clock,
Must you destroy another’s
time today?”

one of us is in the present,
but which one,
I dare not ask.

farther and farther and farther,
it tends to seek,
a moment I have yet to meet.

sending me to places no mind should glimpse
yielding answers no rational mind
could interpret.

watching, ever so sadly,
This empty life move on by,
without me.
