the clock

the clock

2 a.m.
central standard time
i cant sleep
counting the hours
since i last smiled
since i last truly smiled
counting the hours
on the hands of the clock
tick
im all alone
tock
im not sure where i am
tick
and im not sure what to do
tock
i sit awake
listening
tick
to time slipping away
tock
valuable hours
for sleep
tick
or even productive thought
tock
sitting
in front of this empty screen
trying to find a reason to smile
the clock ticking
is like torture
reminding me
of all the times
i was with you
tick
i had found myself again
but now i am lost
tock
trust
tick
is hard to find
tock
friendship
tick
is beginning to fade
and depression
tock
is only a stroke away
i sit
in front of this empty monitor
tick
tock
counting the hours
tick
till i will be happy again
tock
it feels like ill counting forever
it feels like
tick
tock
the clock strikes
2:25 central standard time
and i stay here
counting the hours
minutes
seconds
ticks
tocks
since i was happy
counting
on
the clock
