Ticking Away the Life

How long does an eternity last within the spanse of a second?

The face of the clock was

Mechanical reflection of my own

Clicking its pointy tongues

For all eternity

Another tick marks

The moment a dream shattered

Impossible now that time

Had taken another tock forward

All happiness is tethered

Not to memories but to moments

Preserved eternally only

In the pages of history

I gaze at that uncaring face

Flipping the pages of recorded joy

Impassive as ever in its duty

It clicks away another eternity

The End
