The clock drone on and on

Tick-tock , tick-tock

In front of me a blank paper

In my hand , a pencil .

It’s so tempting to just start writing a letter ,

But to who ?

And about what ?

Things aren’t the same anymore

No one to write to .

And nothing to write about .

I’d write to YOU , but i wouldn’t find any reason to .

My paper stays blank .

The author's comments:
In truth, my poem is representing a broken connection. When a connection to something or someone breaks out of the blue, it's kind of hard to recognize what happened and it's even harder to get used to being without it. In simpler words, it's just a late reaction to an event.

Repetitive, but deep (: Definitly can relate.
