Poem #6: Timeless

Never forget what time it is.

The clock will not.

Keep your eyes glued to the second hand.

Watch as each second, minute, hour

Trickles away like sand in an hourglass,

Because every second you live

Brings you closer to the second

That you will die.

Oh, that dark cloud that hangs over our heads

And the constant, ever constant


The reminder that the clock keeps on ticking

Whether you’re looking at it or not.

You don’t want to miss a single second.
