clockwork

clockwork click clock work for me
winding me toward you
tick tock take away
broke the day I met you

clockwork stuck for us
never us
only you
you and me
tick and tock
click said clock
and lost me

clockwork broken down
broken up
bits of metal crown
life's gears
told us
to drip drop
and clatter with a cling clang

clockwork showing time
slowing mind
our time
tells us
ding dong
hours gone
ours never was one

clockwork doesn’t work
doesn’t pound our rhythm out
our beat
lost beat
tick clock tick clock
tick

The End
