i watch you walk
it sounds creepy but i just like
to observe you
your comings and goings.

i notice you're very punctual.
so the next day i buy a cheap watch to keep up with you

the watch is a small casio
that i bought at a pawn shop
it barely keeps to time
your time

for now time is only a measure of you

i try to keep up
with your comings and goings
but my watch doesn't keep to time
your time

for time is but only a measure of you

the watch is rusting
slowly slowly
but you don't notice the rust stains on my arms
nor my pleading eyes for a piece of your time

scars of time
which by my new definition
are scars of you
