Unwind My Nevertime - Poem by Princess LilyPad

There is a stupid clock on the wall
And I want to know who the creep is that keeps winding it.
But everyplace I go it ticks
So it’s not that jerks fault at all
God it keeps on going and now I see the minutes
More like they are gone even before they come
So im sucked into the past
spat out of the present
and suspect of the future.
Because I can’t pin it down.
I can’t say I live “now! ” cuz then that second is gone.
In the second it took to say “now! ” A second past again.
No “now! ” And then that bitch is gone too.
And now All those nows are in the past.
And I just can’t grasp
A second to live
Without thinking they are all gone already.
And I’m stunned.
Death is far nearer than I anticipated.
