Wasted Time
Tick..tick..tick.., I hear the seconds

I can feel them slip away

Soon the seconds turn to minutes

..Turn to hours..Turn to days..

-

Thump..thump..thump.., I feel the pounding

Hear it echo through my head

Balck and bounding, ring resounding

Pound! Pound! Pound! the darkened dread

-

Crash..crash..crash.., I sense the onslaught

I can feel it growing near

Soon the sound precedes the pound

Afraid now that I fear my fear

-

Whack..whack..whack.., it's growing louder

Drowning out my struggled breath

Questions burning, thoughts are churning

Just alive for lack of death

-

Bang..bang..bang.., it's never stopping

Empty rooms do echo free

Through placid walls and empty halls

The tolls forever ring

-

Stop! stop! Stop! your tortured tirade

Let me sleep a night in peace

A second's silence from the violence

But the sound shall never cease

-

Boom! boom! boom! I can not take it

I can't hear another tick

Thoughts are dreary, eyes are weary

Reaching for my walking stick

-

Smash! Smash! Smash! I'll stop the ticking

Bring the torture to a rest

And in my binge I bringe revenge

And take a weight off of my chest

-

Sweet, sweet, sweet the song of silence

Not a sound within my room

...Sickly silent...Deathly quiet...

...Now it seems I'm in a tomb...

-

Dead..dead..dead.., I've killed the tolling

Brought the pounding to an end

No single sound...within...without...

..I've just killed my only friend..

-

No..no..no I can't endure it

Silence chills me to the bone

Now I'm crying, slowly dying

Silence feeling so alone



This one came about because of a clock that was hanging on the wall in my studio apartment. One night I just could not get to sleep because of the damn ticking. It started from there and kind of blossomed into this.
