Clocked Seconds

Clocked Seconds

A Poem by Hanakuso
"

You are my time. I am the time-keeper.

"

Exhausted to an altered state

The reality seeps in


Breathing heavily in and out

A trickle of sweat

Makes its way down


Down


Down…


Deprived of everything

Craving something

Bequeathed nothing

Too emotionally drained

Can I fast forward?


Again


Again...


To the part where

Everything is all right again

Before it may just

Break me again.


Suddenly so aware of the silence

That muffles my thoughts

on pain

And suffering and despair


It fills my ears with nothingness

Like the sound of tears

to the happy man


This sense of purpose

Lost, until the memory


Of me and you

Begins again.

Oh this is a masterpiece. very well penned. This:

Deprived of everything
Craving something
Bequeathed nothing
Too emotionally drained
Can I fast forward?
Again
