GLITCH

In the blackest of nights, like tar so thick time tangled into a bewitching twist as hours faltered in starts and fits minutes and seconds lost their wits and tumbled into a frightening glitch. A black hole swallowed the grid of time glitches of past and future timelines history was swept into a vortex mine panic reigned, an apocalyptic sign while the universe fled, never more to shine.

Fascinating idea, Laura. Much food for thought, and something to look into: 'The Collapse of Time,' at least as we know it. Cheers, Gershon

Thank you, Nina! My son is also obsessed with the Apocalypse...so much so, he made a movie called Apocalypsis!

Thank you, Silent! A pretty catastrophic take on the subject, I know, but at least it’s something..! ;)
