Before You Know It

Rest, who needs it?

All I have ever wanted to do was run, dream, watch the stars fall

Pulled away from that all

by my vicious clock

and it’s relentless hands moving forward

demanding I do the same

Instead

maybe I should look at it’s

second hand, wearing down it’s face

there’s a lesson there.

Did you hear the alarm go off? I haven’t. Not yet. Not today.
