Time and bitterness

By Noel Ihebuzor

I, Time will take bitterness
and make it history
in my time

a gentle wand
will erase the scars
left by the barbed lips,
in my time

my breath soft smoothens
that hard tongue,
formerly sour and metal acerbic
and fills it
with sweetness
all in my time,

***Susan Daniel”s wonderful poem this link prompted this response

    you are lucky
    the ticking clock heals you
    it cleanses you of
    the past

    for us its ever ringing bell
    wishing it would dig into our eardrums
    make us deaf
    to promises
    never to be
