Tick Tock

I arrive at my place

Am greeted by an unsettling silence

Tick tock, tick tock

I hear a chime

Announcing the passing of time

That constant clanging

That echoes in my brain

That resounds in my core

“You and I are no more”

Tick tock, tick tock

It’s the bells of oblivion

That constant ticking

That stays taunting


The seconds that have passed

since you were here last

When you miss him so much, even the clock’s ticking pulls at the scab.

It might feel like it’s not doing much for you, but time IS going by and it WILL get better.

And then time will be to experience bigger and better things 😉
