Ticktock Says the Clock


ticktock ticktock

Time goes too fast
though I am a part of it
in its inevitable movement
it swallows me in the night

Relics of the past seem ages ago
fragments of the future feels like the present
no moment is captured in  perfect still
like a canoe desperately trying to row in hills of waves

Parts of me are carried on
parts of me are left behind
am I still me?
or am I a byproduct of time?

The span of time is eternal
it has existed before we even knew about it
therefore no one can go against it
in the face of time we are only ephemeral

All I wanted is to be free
unbound by all laws and decrees
time has given birth to me
I wonder when will it take me back
back to the nothing that I was
