The Clock That Told Stories

"
Sitting
Each eye on each hand of the old timer bronzed clock
Philosophy
My principals written along cracked fading drywall, 
Hall peeled dripping paint chips,
And all of what used to be bold colors of Autumn,
Old Earth's Fall's Bittersweet, Cinnamon, and Atomic Tangerine abstract identity,
Now faded to black
And I find myself displaced
Fung Shui space would only time travel, teleporting me back
And this.
Yin, Yang, 
Being,
Things,
Knowing of metaphysics
Metaphysical substance, halos, and auras; subconsciously questioned mind's nature
Essentially characteristics I'd struggle to understand
These moments in spur
Sporadically blurred dusk's horizon in an unidentifiable medley of history and present
Sun sent endeavors, a dark hour or broken clock
Stirred emotions,
Compassion in withered interaction.
And yet.
Sitting,
I spent hours glaring at that bronzed clock,
The face which spoke of stories and time
Unrest and grime
Certain it'd spare a hand
In revelation, shared a story
A narrative that seemed fictional
A script to understanding a united north hemisphere land
I'd change my focus
Navigating wickedness, the vices,
In hopes the mountain range would uncover and open sun temples and moments
Surely decoded Egyptian hieroglyphics would decipher,
Pinnacle of unimaginable
Tactical militaristic unstable mind
Vehement and vivid through current life and visuals
The clock that told stories and time
Drained mentally and physical
And noon set a new,
Repeat, and it'd tell me
Just how much a hand of time costs.

"The clock that told stories and time

Resetting time, noon the only absolute in ancient times...Egyptian hieroglyphics, mountain ranges, sun temples...and all made relevantto today by: "Tactical militaristic unstable mind
Vehement and vivid through current life and visuals"

As always, I'm, first of all amazed at myself when I actually "get" deep poetry *smirk*, I'm such a plebeian...and when I read something as intense or deep as this and it clicks in my head...that's not my IQ, that's your talent.

Thank you for such a wonderful poem.
Your content is always both engaging and thought provoking so well done for that.

I wonder if you would consider using stanzas, if for nothing else but to give the reader a chance to breathe and digest segment by segment. I feel stanzas can also add impact as well as end a thought to start a new one.

You always paint 🎨 pictures for the reader that would not general come in natural thought. For that aspect well done X
