I love how you effectively showed that time is indeed a sort of poison.

hi beccagivens,

thank you! :)

hi Liz,

i ran the gamut from arsenic to zinc, even the dior perfume. then i thought what is the one thing that will get us in the end, and the haiku just wrote itself. :)

hi mindlovemisery,

thanks for visiting! :)

Great take on this prompt. "a page yellows" -- love this last line!

hi Judith,

thanks for your comments. :)

about the last line, i wrote a few images for that, but settled on the page yellowing, as i felt that this image is the strongest.
