Time Eater

Time Eater

It’s late, but I find myself here again
Watching nonsense til my eyes burn bright red
My Bedtime has passed; its long after ten
Sneaking upstairs to munch on fancy bread

Really, I can’t sleep alone anymore
The warm heat you used to give off was nice
But now you separate me from the world
I let you eat my time and roll my dice

It’s the time eater, the devil himself
Staining my eyes until my young brain melts.

Katie Ator | ’20
