tick tock

second, minute, hour,
tick, tock, goes the clock.
hour, day, week,
tick, tock, goes the clock.
week, month, year,
tick, tock, goes the clock.
tick,
tick,
tick,
forward.
tick,
tick,
tick,
forward.
always moving onward.
winter, spring, summer, autumn,
tick, tock, goes the clock.
winter, spring, summer, autumn,
tick, tock, goes the clock.
always moving onward.
life spans begin, life spans end,
tides ebb, tides flow,
steady intervals, steady tempos,
tick, tock, goes the clock.
tick,
tick,
tick,
...silence.

tears (a poem)

tears of pain
tears of sorrow
grieving and distress
whimpering
weeping
wailing
a breakdown
a moment
a memory long gone
an emptiness
an ache
a longing
tears of pain
tears of sorrow
ruby red flows out
floods
gushes
from some tears
while other tears
simply fall
stream down the cheeks
