Staring in the Face of Regret by Averey Respall

 

Staring in the Face of Regret by Averey Respall

Sitting, Waiting, Procrastinating.

Later, After, Then.

This is it.

It's now or never.

Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock

A glimpse at the clock

Regret stares back at you

as you begin to doze off into your paradise.

Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock.

 

You hate me.

I am your enemy.

I always have been and always will be.

Time.

You stare at me with the face of regret

and I stare back with the reflection from

my clear glass surface.

Every tick and tock is a taunt

to your everyday.

Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock.
