The Clock

The Clock short poem

I remember,
The Clock, Beige and White
of my child days
That used to spell time
Now is broken
but the time never stopped,
And on the wall
they hung a newer one
the time never stopped

I saw my bicycle
Once the dearest friend
have fallen abandoned
under the stair
I remember the years
I sat calm on the loneliest fields
I used to draw pictures
might have written some letters
for the girl next door

The time never stopped
older had to go someday
the younger took his place

Now when I see the pictures
the letters never sent,
and the bicycle
I can smell the autumn
that some day I was riding down the road

In the hollowness of the night
I can hear its still ticking away
and I know one day I’ll be gone
the memories of it’s beige and white
may be lost……. forever

But the time will go on,
with another one
the time will go on and go on
through the eon and eon…

Time goes on and on. Was it Time that passed, and still Time that has yet to come? And yet @kuntaldebbarman Time could be said as having not left at all. It dies once it passed, and a new one born simultaneously, only to die as another is born….until when Time is no more. But clocks will still be ticking.

And yes, you could still fall behind the Times despite the above. I like your poem.

The Clock Guy prose poem

There once Lived a man named Mr McDocks, he loved one thing and THAT thing was clocks. He fixed them and sold them; he had his own shop, he treasured them always; it JUST wouldn’t stop. He had watches, grandfathers


Clock short poem

Her heart was like a clock that I wanted to stop and rewind the dial back. Remembering the beginning. Following the curve of ticks as everything around disappeared. The ticks and tonks that throb as pulse. The blossom of smiles

Chasing The Clock short poem

Sitting here waiting while the clock face chases forward my memories bewildered and twisted, with unborn thoughts… Seeing things I’ve waited for all these years just go by as tear drops now, like a paper book each page is turned,

Solo, I am clock maker born September 22nd, a Virgo/Libra mix insane, look at my moving parts, apart yet together, holes in air, artistic perfection, mechanical misfits everywhere, life is a brass lever, a wordsmith, an artist at his craft.
