Ticking

In my head, it made sense

Why I stayed up with my pen

If today could last me longer,

Then tomorrow won't begin

.

Sunday night's just the beginning of the end.

All week I hold it in, count to 3, count to 10

Count to 50 till it stops

But the world's a ticking clock

Ticking quicker till you're sicker and you're living just to rot

And it's not

I'm at 90 but the ticking never ceases

120 and I'm praying I can rest in all my pieces

There's no time to glue me back, I've got scholarships to do

I've got deadlines and exams, there's no time for freaking glue!

Wish I knew back when I started I would be so brokenhearted

Wish the web weren't addicting,

there was a college I was picking,

Wish

that

time

would

stop

ticking

 

All I need

is a pause.

Just a colon or a comma

for this sempiternal life;

a cesura from the drama.

Primadonna would I be?

If I ached for notes of silence?

If the violence will not cease,

Then I have to seal my eyelids.

 

...

 

Tick.

Tock.

Tick.

Tock.

Tick, well even here I see

Tock, that time will never cease

Tick, and so I dare to think

Tock, that it was meant to be

Tick, You think that life is short?

Tock, It's long as we perceive

Tick, so maybe time is slower when you drink what you receive

 

So maybe all I need's a passion telling me to write a poem

'Bout the family and friends that push me through and keep me going

'Bout the times when I was drowing but I taught myself to swim

Cause it took me long enough to realize I had come to win

 

So maybe time's relentless, well, so is love and it's all I need

A pause is just a second long, but love's forever guaranteed

This poem is about: 
Me

I like the playful writing and the emphases on time . In the poem you wrote a line that said "theres no time for freaking glue" I am nott sure why but i found something comediac about this. It was almost as if you were in your freaking out over a project. The use of time was also abundant in the poem. This when reading created a sense of rush. As I was reading I was also rushing to keep up with the pace of the poem. Overall good topic and a good poem.
