seven minutes to midnight

Seven minutes to midnight
When dragonflies play
Feasting on reality
Seven deadly sins
All before the clock strikes
And time runs out

Seven minutes to midnight
The ladies dance
Reaching out to touch the fire
One among them breathing words in flames
Wrapping her arms like wings in an inferno

Seven minutes to midnight
Is that lady dancing with fire?
My future or just a memory
Gone in the past
Burn out like a dragonfly in the flames
Chanting to a song

Seven minutes past midnight
Sitting around the ambers
The simmering glow telling a narrative
As the dragonfly plays
And sleep pulls me to her bosom
Patience has time limits too
