Tick Tock

You’re forty and still alone You sit there and wonder where this all went wrong Living a lie and smiling through it Cant hide the pain, you got used to it Wearing a mask but honey nobody is fooled Staring at the crumbled castle you once ruled Oh how you wish the clock would turn Oh how you wish you could set fire to the memories and watch them burn Gave up seventeen years of your life for him Now your view on life is so grim Wishing and wishing upon a star It’s too late your chance is gone The clock still tick, ticks on

I read it a few minutes ago. I haven't disliked any of your poems and I don't I think I ever will because they are all so beautifully written and so full of emotion <3
