Bent studiously with encyclopedic intensity over x’s and y’s,
And such,
Unaware of time squandered,
The yearnings inside; coiled springs,
And the sunsets she does not witness?
The lovely places she does not visit?
The intimacies she does not share?
And the whispers of the heart she does not pause to listen?
Fulfillments postponed,
“Do not worry you have time!” wisdom whispered,
Deceptive mumblings,
Allotted time squandered!
