I need a breather,
for I have set a timer,
in each fraction of my life

I've never tried running a marathon but,
I have always felt that I'm running out of time.
Every beat feels like ticking,
I'm afraid that soon it'll stop.

it seems like there's a timer
in my head
counting down
to every bad day
except i don't know when
the timer will go off
but it seems like
the time between bad days
is slowly getting longer
let's be honest though i will never be mentally/emotionally stable

It’s
not
death
you
should
be
afraid
of
but
the
timer
it
puts
on
life.

So little time, so much of it wasted...

been so conditioned to the
abuse that I set my mental timer to cry
b4 we must wipe away
my tears & fears
30 seconds

I was there when he broke your heart,
Like a savage,tore it into tiny parts,
A bit here, a bit there,
Scattered into shards everywhere.
I saw you  bleeding with sorrow,
As if there was no tomorrow.
I am sorry I could not help you heal your wounds,
For I  had not come around,
I  too, was bleeding,
In pain writhing,
He had left me too,
In pieces I am still unable to sew.

Imminent grainy current
constrained in flight
downward
onto
a pile of past moments

Tick Tock
The clock inside me,
runs me ever so tightly
I hear the wheels in my mind
tossing and turning
I want these empty feelings to stop
but I know fate is inevitable

Tick Tock
The days of my life,
are set in a timer
The living air I breath
are soon to cease
The thoughts I feel
will soon lose meaning
A poem that I’ve written years ago, hopefully it is still well today (:

After all, hourglasses are only filled so much.
Be happy.
Move on.
It's 2017 now! New year, new people, new decisions. Don't waste it fixating on something you can't control. Life is on a timer. Just keep going, somethings are bound to get better. ;)
