A Broken Watch & A Broken Heart - Poem by Optimus Prime

I've lost all track of time
your sun will always be quick
and in my mind its always been you
it's been you into who's eyes I’ve stared
its been you who’s lips grazed mine
and I could stare for forever
at what the balcony beholds
but my heart dribbles down between my teeth
and its there I’ve earned this fate
I beg you, just glance on back
as you've held out for far too long
as your far too far away
but I’m the one at fault
I swear by every finger I own
because my chest it pounds for you
as i pound this stagnant dial
so eat your clock and i wont mind
as i twirl through my fingers four leaves
