Hourglass

The sand is painless as it falls on my shoulders,
sprinkling me with loving moments and memories.
It piles up around me making sandcastles of my childhood.
I wait for the water to wash it away but it never comes.

You play around me carelessly as the sand keeps falling.
How come you can’t see the restrictions of this glass house.

Time is against us and you don’t care that the castles are growing.
It piles around us, you keep having fun, oblivious to what’s to come,
but I know what awaits us as the sand piles up.

The grains of our relationship piling up and it’s only a matter of time
before we are buried from the hate you call love.
