Time is an illusion

time is of the essence

deadline coming soon

time is money

deadline is tight

time is relative

deadline looms

time running out

deadline is past

tick tock goes the clock


ending of the end

  5. I enjoyed the way you played with ‘time’ and ‘deadline’, Eugenia. As I get older, I am ever more conscious of the final deadline.

  7. How Eugenia. I’m a day late getting around to reading peoples works but I love what you wrote here so I guess the wait was worth it. 🙂 You dealt with time wonderfully in this poem, and I love the GIF that you put at the top. Fascinating. Great choice, great work.
