Clock Ticks On


As the clock keeps ticking,
Im counting down the minutes until I can take my life.
Counting down until I will finally be free.
I count down until I will be able to have a real smile.
Only a few minutes left.
Have all my notes written.
Count each one and lay them out.
I have everything set up just as the clock chimes twelve.
I sit on my floor,
Pop three bottles of pills.
I count each beat of my heart
It's slowing down and fading away
I finally smile a real smile
I die as the clock ticks on...

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
