Up Against

Up against it.
It moved, as I stood still.
I fight it-
It’s haunting hands
hold what it will.

Up against it.
Stronger, stronger than I.
My back rests-
It is holding me
like time.

Up against it.
A reflection, unrecognized.
Fight my demons-
Adversaries stronger than
brick and Father Time.
