Nine

Nine Months
Not nine and a half
Still hurting
Broken heart

Nine Weeks
Not nine and a half
Too old for that
Too old by half

Nine Days
Not nine and a half
Still counting
I know it's daft

Nine Minutes
Not nine and a half
Tears flowed
To, fro and aft

Nine seconds
Not nine and a half
Writing these words
And now its past.

    Interesting write, holding onto hope and trying to stop or slow down time. Mabe off on this one but an excellent piece. Thanks for commenting on my work.
