The Clock it Mocks

Left out in the cold
Silent night; my jilted star
That once blazed in cherish across her world
That once lit up her heart and twinkled her toes
Now, no longer glows

Once; upon a long time ago
A memory now of old forgotten times
A star now in decline
It lies there – dead

A death star now exploding into Supernova’s
Of hope
Hoping against useless hopelessness
That bleeds you to the core when
Drowning in repetitive
Wonderment

To choking on what could have, should have 
Been
Before Him…

Before. It was just Us

Her hands, I clearly see, frozen in pantomime 
Of words unsaid
They spilled across the floor like a whore
His smell upon our bed
Insanity climbing through my head
It spreads, like a disease
Only time can purge

Only the clock

It mocks

Tick tock
Tick tock…

this one had an immediate impact on me, and it doesn't surprise me to discover that it's one of yours, as you know I really like your poetry...I loved those opening lines, and I also liked the sprinkling of internal rhyme, and the end rhyme you used - great title too! congrats on your win in my contest :)

This is a free verse write that truly excels . Has the flavor, the raw emotion and the images to make a sad but bold statement. I rarely fav free verse but this I add to my fav list and am honored to do so. If it was rejected that was a pure travesty. Super 7 I give..

Hey thanks Robert, your kind words are inspiring and I'll cherish them. I unfortunately missed out on getting this into the contest! Thanks for the visit

wow, another very good one here. I see that it was in the rejection contest and yet I see no congratulations down here. If that contest got judged and you were not a winner, it's a travesty. Your writing is very well honed. I don't normally care for the way many poets write their free verse. You are someone whose free verse I would want to read again and again. A new fave poet for me. I noticed I had already seen a few of your other poems earlier and they too were superlative.
