The time settings in blitz have an initial time and an increment. The clock ticks down from the initial time, but each time you move the increment is added to your clock.
If you (or your opponent) take less time per move than the increment then the time GROWS.
Try reviewing your time control more carefully - oh, and get your CAPS LOCK KEY FIXED.
