Tick Tock

tick tock tick tock
wonder why time just can’t stop
the seconds go on by
on the big black clock

the clock strikes nine
its time to dine
peel off your skin
and have a look at what you call “mine”

your heartbeat now a dance
your eyes locked in a trance
your liver is still aquiver
with the poison not taken by chance

so you sew yourself back up
while you down another cup
stare at yourself in the mirror
and repeat “I am enough”

because the time is ticking down
and you feel like you might drown
so you fight with all your might
because tonight won’t be your renown.

you take another look inside
and ask yourself “gods why”
as you remind yourself the beauty
of the first morning light

tick tock tick tock
wonder why time just can’t stop
the seconds go on by
on the big black clock

and the cycle will repeat until you make it stop.
count the seconds as they go by on the big black clock
