Keep me close For time is running out I’ve moved Too far . . . Too fast . . . In the corridors of time. . . . Swiftly . . . I’ve run by the side roads Leading to slow and easy times. I’ve picked no flowers Along the streams and paths, Wasted no time On songs And tales Of travelers along the way. The moments . . . The hours . . . The days . . . The “glittering coins of time,” I’ve spent without a thought. The purse will soon be empty. The "EXIT" sign looms large . . . And grins Above the door That opens its arms to fold me . . . Softly . . . Into night’s dark bosom.

    This sounds like a trip to Vegas.Quite the gambler are we......them damned slots will do it every time!I know that this is not what your poem is about though it was the first thing that crossed my mind when I seen glittering coins and a grinning exit.Well done!
