An apology for not writing...

Funny how time can slip away from you. No, slip is the wrong word. Like it slides gracefully, a sash of silk drifting in the breeze. Time never feels that fluid or malleable.

Time is wrenched from us all. Snatched in a complex, jagged movement as we try desperately to cling to its invisible fabric. Sometimes we tear holes in it. Not deliberately of course. But driven by sheer desperation, our nails dig in ferociously and we yank it back to safety.

Only for it to eventually just vanish like it was never there. No remnant or echo. Just a void. And in that void, we realise the undeniable truth. It was never ours to keep....
