Time ~ A Poem

Ticking clocks and Westminster chimes
The infernal tolling of bells
Time, time taking its toll
Leaving behind desiccated remains
Holes carved in weary hearts
Two halves cleaved from the whole
All you ever wanted was someone like me
All I ever wanted was to be somebody else
If you could just heal the divide in me
Maybe I could breathe life back into you
Restore in me the will to live
Restore in us both the hope to love
Silence the clocks and stop time
