A peace of time

i can’t see past sanity

…tick tock

the door
lights out
creaking floorboards
of dreams striped and contorted
you, whirling away
the night
calling the cuckold clock

…tick tock

the forest of eyes
that winter in me
the tracks in the snow
bitten off by white waters

…tick tock

i can’t see past ignorance

…tick tock

the open blindness to chances
unrelenting sparks
of hope faded in memory

…tick tock

in distance
torn away
claws scratching canvas
screeching blackboards
hands over my ears
to make it through
to make it

…tick tock

stop.
