silent night

Posted to Action Poetry

quiet night i hear a clicking
It must be that old clock that's ticking
i want to tear it off the wall
stop counting seconds after all

seconds passed since our love died
seconds that i've sat and cried
not as if I've had a choice
just me no you no laugh no voice

just that clock and it's refrain
tick tock tick tock again again
reminding me that you're not here
and how long ago i held you near
