Tick Tock Tick

Like repeat repeat
tick tock tick
my fingers heart mind
flutter stutter stick.
I’ve had enough invalid reason
to fight for stuff that will not work
sick and sick and sick
of trying to fight for it.
So taking one last step on forward
forward to the rim
my fingers curl about the strings
and snip snip snip the rest of them.
Now hard as stone
and rigid walls
they were once down
will never again fall.
Like a fool flighted moth
flit in the candle
fire burns the best of us
and even causes time to stick
stopping from moving forward with this.
Having had enough
of the constant let down disappoint
-ment
Alone is best justified in this situation
annointed.
Pain reserved for moments like this
opens gaping wounds
and sorrow ensues.
