Passing Time

Passing Time

value-my-time.jpg

I'm sitting at my desk

The clock is beating time

Each second I grow older

Sentenced for some crime,

My thoughts are like a river

Flowing through my mind

I feel a guilty shiver

Seeing where I'm blind

Seeing what I chose to

Ignoring what truly is

The reality that I knew

Was blinded in a kiss

My past melts by in hours

A lifetime to recall

Pouring down in showers

As further back I trawl

The hours don't bother me

It's all those many years

Trying to swim the backstroke

Through pools of painful tears

I feel an ache inside me

Skewering me to my soul

The emptiness I see

Is like a gaping hole

Weakness can't be shown

My tears are in disguise

How frail this mask I own

I see it through my eyes

I need to see more clearly

And not get lost in dreams

Mistakes can cost so dearly

Regret paid back in screams

Everything round me changes

The clock's still beating time

I hear so many echoes

Your distant voice resign

I'm embracing independence

With one eye on the clock

Rising to the challenge

While clinging to my rock

My love, my mind, my spirit,

All dwell inside of me

I need to set them free

If happy I'm to be

I know I must be patient

And wait the clock to chime

As time cascades around me

I'm only passing time
