Tick-Tock

Tick-Tock

A Poem by Emma Kirchhoff

Tick tock
the time counts down
Tick tock
the hands move around
Tick tock
the exaggerated sound
Tick tock
making my heart pound
Tick tock
the beat comes again
Tick tock
the only sound, only friend
Tick tock
the sound fills my mind
Tick tock
leaving the past behind
Tick tock
Tick tick
Tick tock

I truly do mean it when I say you have a way with words. You express so much in so little. For me, this makes me think of anxiety and how much pressure and loneliness everything can bring, but I love how people can interpret this differently. Great job once again. :)

This one has a very definite beat to it. The way you use "tick tock" between every line makes the reader feel like they're hearing a clock. You did a good job changing the rhymes from -own to -ound to -end to -ind.
