The Clock is Ticking Dear

The Clock is Ticking Dear

A Poem by guy drori

Your lungs 
fill with air
as the morning dew
quivers on the verdant grass.

You are about to say
I know it.
In the meantime,
the moon already exchanged places
with the sun
hundreds of times,
and summer trees -- from lovely dressed --
sorrowful and nude.

That dew among the grass
long had sunk 
beneath the earth,
and same of grass
which verdant once
sallow has become.

Wrinkles grew
on papa John
and grandpa Sam
has passed.
Our children we remember
walk on two 
at last.

The clock is ticking dear, 
yet still your lungs
are filled of air.
Just say the words!
They're only three.
don't you even slightly care?

Great writing, good use of wording as well. Your poem has hidden meaning behind it and it has an emotional heft to it.
