A Collective of Poems

Tick Tock Tick Tock

Minutes

to hours

to days

to months to years

A midnight haze remains

Going about the world as if in a dream

or a trance

Questions seemingly trivial

unneeded

unnecessary

who cares?

Why don't I?

try I might

And then again

but still

no emotion comes to light

only shades of gray

some blue

others red

No Spectrum

No need

No light

No meaning

Others can find it

Why Can't I?

Why can you?

Why no passion?

Why so Blaz-ay?

Why so Empty

Why so Numb?

Why aren't you?

Why am I?

Why are we?

What's the point

Keep going

Keep living

Tick Tock Tick Tock

Minutes

to hours

to days

to months to years
