Time Traveler – An Introvertical

Time moves because the traveler
Exists with bags packed
To journey from point A to
Measure the depth of a heart or
The lay of the land, but in a
Lapse of concentration,
In a moment of automation,
Living becomes blurred
With goals unaligned in
A path gone astray beyond
Knowledge and in pettiness
Of sorts as dreams lay
Dying, learning late of destinies
Marked upon foreheads
By life manifested in
Moments of pure goodness
In which we look for
Love beyond a purchase
And find intrinsic truths to
Enlightenment to point B.
