Stopped Counting

Time  . . .

My inner clock doesn’t seem to match up

with the world’s clock

anymore.

It’s not off just by a few seconds

or minutes

but as if my inner clock

has stopped counting altogether.

Quantifying and calculating life is

so foreign?

I completely don’t know how I was able to

live, breath, love

by the rules of

1 tic

2 toc

3 tic

4 toc

echoes the old grandfather clock.

Somehow,

now,

I am not content to live between the pendulum swings.

I don’t want my life to be counted and measured

by this alien number system that says it is 11:17 AM

Tic

toc

tic

toc

the mouse ran up the clock.

  1. It is nice at times to be able to ignore the clock, but then reality sets in and we have to get back to meeting our obligations and use the clock as a tool. I hope we can use the clock as a tool and not not let it become our master.
