Time

Incessant.
Perhaps better put as
Perpetual.
The master movement mechanic,
As consistent as my healthy heart beat,
The ever clever uninvented
Perpetual motion machine.
It has its circular sway,
Monotonic metronome in
Measured meter mastered.
How uncanny the way it is
Laid in such a strange place.
 
Relentless.
Definitely better made as
Unforgiving.
That callous overlord,
Carefully creating our caution,
The timid terror of the ticking
Clocks and mechanics.
Analogue or digital measure,
Irrelevant ideas indeed seen
In this unstoppable being.
How cutting the way it is
Drained in such a steady way.
 
Ironic.
I would rather make as
Perfect.
This emotional wrapping,
Inescapable bliss train towards pain,
The warm pulse patterns
Make out to mock me.
My out of reach song,
Your gift was this infernal
Perpetual tick tock torture.
How fitting the way it is
surrounding in such a cloudy night.
