Poetry: “Passage of time”

Started on a napkin, continued some days later.

***~***~***~***

Passage of time

To watch the seconds
Tick Tock
Ticking
Moments slowly trickling by
The echoes of your life
Diminished
Tick Tock
Ticking
One by one
Grains of sand between your fingers
Slowly slipping
Down and down
Tick Tock
Ticking
‘Til they’re gone
Snapshots taken
Frozen memories
Stacked in piles inside your head
It’s all that
You will retain when
Tick Tock
Tick-
Your clock winds down
