My Clock No More

Now my clock ticks no more,
Is with night who does secure
It as the nail who dwells in a door.

Sight with sound fail to pour
In hush stirred to be pure
Of life that so tinkles to the core.

My clock halted did store
Tranquility full to lure
Me in freezing the life of before.

No suffering to bore
Me with torment to endure,
Feeling once had I need not implore.

No quake esteemed by lore
Of time, in its pressure sure
To awaken my clock by its roar.

Time frozen fails to soar,
Consciousness frozen to tour
Around in a realm where hush is hoar.

    'No suffering to bore

    i'm sure u're talking abt death, cos that's the only time when one is free from earth's sufferings and torments. nicely written

    You speak of Time with unique abandon, but that makes for a very excellent poem. Who were we before? Who will we be after?
    The night will not tell, and it is for us to be curious, but never ask that question...but I did.xxxxElys

    thanks for the invitation to read your poems. time is gold as the cliche goes but does it not imprison us as well that we tend to do things hurriedly at times (pun unintended) thinking that time is consumed better if we do things in a fast paced manner? i love the absence of the clock. it does not tell me what to do but that does not mean i am less an organize person. thanks and hope that i may be able to impart omething about me to you through the poems i write. God bless!

    We all sometimes experience this 'silence' in the passage of time. But it's fate...into every life some rain would pour I think. This is good. Ienjoyed it. Thanks for sharing

    To me this poem has two meanings that either the person is dead or the feelings of the poet are too unbearable that it seems that every thing is still and dead. All and all a beautiful poem

    Perhaps the lack of a clock could be a beneficial thing. No more worrying about minute hands moving or hours crawling by. Instead, maybe in this time paralysis one could learn how to appreciate the moment - each and every moment.

    Hi obinna

    I think your poem is full of lexical meaning.
    And the along with allusion.


    well done..

    I think, speaking musically, you should try to find a way to switch up the rhyme scheme at some point. This is just an opinion, obviously, but I felt like by the second to last stanza the rhymes were losing their punch and it stopped being fun to read; started to feel more like a slog.
