Nineteen....Mirror Sonnet

How did the time fly when twelve was so high
That twenty seemed like an ancient mermaid?
But mermaids never age so it is said
And tetween times only count egg timer sighs,
Unlike the soul that stopped, only growing shy.
Counter clockwise ran her thoughts instead
The aha! moments merely drew out and bled
Upon page after page after page after page of whys.
Finally the body knows yet cannot speak
Screaming it's joys an dpains in Greek.
Upon page after page after page after page of whys,
The aha! moemnts merely drawn out and bled
Counter clockwise ran upon her thoughts instead
Unlike the soul that stopped, only growing shy
And between times only count as egg timer sighs.
But mermaids never age so it is said
That twenty seemed like an ancient mermaid
How did the time fly when twelve was so high?
