Tick Tock


Five o'clock, im feeling down,
All i want is you around.

Six o'clock, i give you a call,
There is no answer at all...

Seven o'clock, i need you there,
With no hope left i sit and stare.

Eight o'clock, nothings changed,
Except a few things in my room i've re-arranged.

Nine o'clock, you're with her now,
I'll just ignore this somehow.

Ten o'clock, i begin to cry,
All i want to do is die,

Eleven o'clock, everyones asleep,
I reach for the pills, slowly, i creep.

Water in one hand, a ticket to peace in the other,
Mix the two together and it could all be over,
No more sitting,
No more crying,
No more failing whilst deaperately trying.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
