Tick, tock

Boom, boom

The thumping of my heart comforting,

Thump, thump

The pulse reminder of hurting.



The heart slowly hating...


The soul quickly fading.


Eyes puffy and stained,

Stomach empty and drained.

Hand tremble and shake,

Feeling emotion of fake.


Staring at time.

Tick, tock.

Clutching as if it's mine.

Tick, tock.


Head pounds and I freeze.

Tick, tock.

Dead silence, no breeze.

Tick, tock.


Eyes heavily close.

Tick, tock.

Dizziness overflows.

Tick, tock.


Last sound I make.

Tick, tock.

The last breath that I take.

Tick, tock.


Slowly I fade............away.
