THE WATCH

THE WATCH

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

" caught on a string, can’t swing away "

"

                                                           

                                                              
a single moment stays

another builds a solid maze

every tick of the clock displays

rising iron walls with slates to gaze

the tick of a tock is the groove to insane

caught on a string, can’t swing away

twisting in the turning fate

the push of a hand

tips the flow of sand

the other hand pulls the weight

forever sharpening the keys

iron mask or the height of a crown

darkness moves on frightening ground

a shared space in the wait

etching forever the sound it makes

a scrap and rattle in a tick for a tock

make doors for walls complete with locks

held open no more, all eyes to the floor

faces keep pace for the evermore

the minds design linked by a chain

a constant companion remains

ticking a song and hammering sublime

safe in a pocket of time


Terry D’Arcy-Ryan

pockets of time hooked on a string,hanging there waiting drives me insane
tick tock goes the clock holding back the time for every thing is sublime
