The lattice of my thoughts,
reflects the inner seams,
etched upon a jigger glass,
of drunken misled dreams.

Time - is a bastard child,
born without his conscience
wicked-tongued he tickles,
"ah you had your chance".

And I am damned, not by if,
only hope shall whore me,
sporting lurid temptations
as if all life, lay duty free.

Too well I know that witch,
that flies on midnight-scars,
her potions always potent,
as the cancer of old stars.

Poisons are deceptive,
still they blacken veins,
cut-them-out, some cry,
but tell me,.....what remains?

Time is never gentle,
I've held his harsher hands,
yet time that deadly joker,
is the one who understands.

Shall we then outdance him?
in awkward motions of forget,
or meet his momemt toe-to-toe,
to spiral so, without regret

Very nice! Enjoyed this a lot. I'm extremely impressed by your rhyming. I wish I could do that.

The second stanza stands out for me personally. Lots of people look at life that way. OH! but, oh! You totally turned it around.

Nice job.

time, time, time
Quite good. Reminds me of a line from one of my poems:

"Time, that gives by taking away"

I particularly liked your lines:

"yet time that deadly joker,
is the one who understands"

you need a comma after the word 'time,' here - superb expression -
