Ezzie- The Unending Clock Still Ticks

Tick, Tock

So continues the clock.

I've continued living

Though I wish not.

***

Why is it that you were taking away

So easily,

While I sit

And listen to the clock tick.

***

My heart continues,

Beat, beat, beat.

Like an unending clock

Tick, tick, tock.

***

Why do I have to

Sit, sit, sit.

And wait so long

for my clock to stop

tock, tock, tock?

***

I bet you are the same dear,

Only vice versa.

You dream of the time

Your clock will start back up.

***

You wish for it to tick

You pray for it to tock,

But the wishing,

and the praying,

never does heal your broken clock.

***

My clock feels just as broken,

But for some reason it won't stop.

Though cogs are missing,

The essence of you.

***

I hate my

Strong

Neverending

Clock.

The End
