Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
11:55 p.m.

Dance, my little princess,
to the music of eternal lore.
Let the darkness surround you.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
11:56 p.m.

Little ballerina, dance
and let the candle light sway,
to your lovely melody.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
11:57 p.m.

Keep on dancing, my little girl,
to your spellbound desire,
to your heart's lying content.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
11:58 p.m.

Don't slow down yet,
My darling, my Love.
The darkness has yet engulfed you.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
11:59 p.m.

Almost time my sweet.
Darkness trailing up your ankles,
creeping slowly towards your soul.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
12 a.m

Listen to my melody of the the Music Box.
Sweet girl, don't stop dancing,
Fore the darkness grasps your soul now.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick....

Just a piece from my "darkside" lol. I heard a song by Nox Arcana and I got this out of it.

Thanks! I know where you're getting at, but what I was trying was to capture the essence and imperativeness of the clock but also the slowness and delicacy of the Music Box.

i really love the idea of this and the repetition...but when i think of a music box i think of a soft beautiful song..not an alarm clock...just my interpretation...but it was still really good (:
