Later…

via Daily Prompt: Later

 

Writing now

about later seems wrong.

 

Shouldn’t I

enjoy now, and

not care too much,

or at least not

worry about later

for now?

 

Now, will die

soon enough

becoming then,

and thens will add

up, and be the past…

 

And later is

so uncertain…

 

Take yesterday.

Yesterday, I believed

later would be as

sweet as then was.

 

But tables turned

and now is leaving

a bitter aftertaste

in my mouth

before turning into

the past…

 

If only it

had been true,

when you smiled

and waved as you said,

 

Later…
