Am I alone?
Just me and my thoughts?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
No. Not alone.
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.

Do I have friends?
Real friends who can help?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
Yes. Yes I have friends.
But am I willing?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
Willing to show this side?
This vulnerable side?
Exposed, like a nerve
open to the elements.
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.

Why do I feel like this?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
Its irrational right?
Yes
Definitely irrational.
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.

What time is it?
02:42?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
Is anyone out there?
Hello?
Why do I feel this alone?
Just me, my brain, and my stupid heart.
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.

**** this heart.
**** this lonely heart

Will I find love again?
Or am I doomed to this icy wasteland of loneliness?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.

Do I want love?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
Love makes things worse right?
Worse when it's gone?
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.
What time is it?
2:44AM?

Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock.

Tick Tock goes the clock of wanting to hit the pipe again
Tick Tock goes the clock of wanting to be numb again
Tick Tock goes the clock of the flame burning against the glass
Tick Tock goes the clock of the drug melting away

Tick Tock goes the clock of inhaling danger into my lungs
Tick Tock goes the clock of exhaling the smoke
Tick Tock goes the clock of the high warming my body

Tick Tock goes the clock of desperately wanting more
Tick Tock goes the clock of crushing more danger
Tick Tock goes the clock of rolling the dollar bill
Tick Tock goes the clock of snorting away my problems

Tick Tock goes the clock of a rush of euphoria
Tick Tock goes the clock of redoing everything again
Tick Tock goes the clock of coming down again

Tick Tock goes the clock of endless sleepless nights
Tick Tock goes the clock of hearing my mother and father cry
Tick Tock goes the clock of the haunting silence in my room
Tick Tock goes the clock of my heart beating inside my chest

Tick Tock goes the clock of picking up the pen
Tick Tock goes the clock of the tear hitting the paper
Tick Tock goes the clock of wanting to be numb again

Tick Tock goes the clock of the trembling hands
Tick Tock goes the clock of folding the paper
Tick Tock goes the clock of whispering one last goodbye
Tick Tock goes the clock of me hanging in the belltower
See
Tick

Tick

The clock goes on

The sickly smell
Tick

Of medicine and pain

tick, tock
i forgot my wristwatch
i'm losing track of time
tick tock
and you're just there,
right in front of me
twirling carbonara noodles with your fork
the sauce messily covering your lips
tick tock
it has been a long time since
you expressed your stories, your dreams
your philosophies, your blusters
tick, tock
i answer you with smiles
with glances that appreciate
the tiniest details about you
tick, tock
your worn out black cardigan
your varicolored necklace
your white tank top
your chaotic food choices
tick, tock
not again
just stop
quit staring
tick, tock
**** it, i can't finish my meal
tick, tock
you smiled at me
tick, tock
you blushed
tick, tock
you laughed at me
tick, tock
again,
i'm falling
in love
with you
tick, tock
deeper
tick, tock
moments
they hit me
like a train
tick, tock
just tell me
when will i see you again
tick, tock
i don't want this to end
tick, tock
take me with you
tick, tock
ugh **** it
tick, tock
you ask me what's wrong
tick, tock
i shake my head
as response
tick, tock
time is running out
tick, tock
i push my plate away
dropped my spoon and fork
they clattered
tick, tock
i stand up
i lean for a kiss
tick, tock

A minute up, Fairies came in frock

Tick Tock Tick Tock
Playing their music with soft chant
Tick Tock Tick Tock
Fairies came in the land grant

Tick Tock Tick Tock
A younger girl came n found the band
Tick Tock Tick Tock
Other Fairies came to shake her hand

Tick Tock Tick Tock
One Fairy smelled the rose
Tick Tock Tick Tock
Crazy smile on her face, of course

Tick Tock Tick Tock
It was night, 11 o'clock
Fairies moved back to the door
Dreaming a fairy land once I was quite young. So I penned down my emotions when I turned adult.

Wilkes Arnold Mar 2016
I was relaxed, and deep in thought
The type of talk that silence brought
When just in earshot it rocked,
tick tock
tick tock
"Must be a clock"
I told myself and resumed my thought

Though as the seconds passed I could not,
Despite the will with which I fought
Do to its incessant knock
Tick tock
Tick tock
I searched for the clock
Unable to find the train I sought

I grew more and more distraught
With each and every tick and tock
That find the clock, I could not
As the silence grew more fraught
With the knock,
Tick Tock
Tick Tock
I knew the pain of Lancelot

On and on it ticked and tocked
I cursed at the unseen dreadnought
It no longer merely mocked
But each and every tick and tock
Became an unseen onslaught
TICK TOCK
TICK TOCK
T'was 11 o'clock,
When my heart felt the gunshot

Though the shots I could not block
And on and on the bullets poured
Further into the fray I bored
Each foot a cinderblock
Weighed by war
I slowly walked
Tick Tock
Tick Tock
How I'd make it answer for

Alas
With little blood left to speak for Desperately I implored
"Restrain your hands that caused such gore;
We need not fight evermore!"
But when I heard the ceaseless knock
Tick tock
Tick tock
I new my words had been ignored
And slowly collapsed to the floor

****** and bludgeoned when I hit bed rock, I had still found no clock
But tick and tock it had forgot
The church bell rang t'was 12 o'clock,
Though mortal wounds the seconds wrought
I no longer was distraught
And as I lay in the hemlock
It occurred in my last thoughts
I would miss the beating knock
tick..., tock...
tick..., tock...

Tick. Tock.
The clock is breathing (but not for you...)
Tick. Talk.
Those markings we can't live without (not me...not you)
Tick. Tock.
It marks your spot in time (ha! your going to die! Stupid...)
Tick. Talk.
The clock mercilessly keeps going (it's not me who's going to burn. It's you! It's you!)
Tick. Tock.
It's face expressionless (it doesn't care...no one does)
Tick. Talk.
Climbing and falling around and back down (you can't stop it...not now, not ever!)
Tick. Tock.
And getting back up each morn and nightbreak (but, not this time...not for you)
Tick. Talk.
Time to get going (you won't come back)
Tick. Tock.
You will miss our date (your about to crack)
Tick. Talk.
You should really hurry (your no longer on your way)
Tick. Tock.
Your running out of time (your really running away)
Tick. Talk.
It's getting away (no...not really)
Tick. Tock.
She won't wait (your word must be kept)
Tick. Talk.
She's coming for you (to collect her payment)
Tick. Tock.
Run. Run RUN (theres no point)
Tick. Talk.
You can't escape (I already tried)
Tick. Tock.
She's right behind you (what a surprise)
Tick. Talk.
Your not going to make it (your about to die)
Tick. Tock.
Your frantic to escape (ha...don't bother)
Tick. Tock.
But you never can see her (I couldn't either)
Tick. Tock.
No matter which shoulder you look over (she's not chasing you)
Tick. Tock.
And through the back your run (it only seems that way)
Tick. Tock.
And before you hit the ground (don't get me wrong your dead)
Tick. Tock.
Your death as payment (you sold your soul...you were always hers to take)
Tick. Tock.
And crumple in a pool of your own lifeblood (Yep your really gone)
Tick. Tock.
The clock strikes the zero hour (your time had come)
Tick. Tock.
And keeps right on breathing (Cuz you? You were nothing...)
Tick Tock
Tick Talk
Tick Tock
(Just like me...)
The clock makes me think of Big Brother

Tock, Tick

Sweeping hands on life's time clock

Tick, Tock

As memory slips in what you did

Give a penny for your thoughts

tick tock tick tock tick tock

Love bursts out of your skin
And slowly starts to drown my heart

tick tock tick tock tick tock

Your voice turns into a melody of a sweet pop song
And your words are the lyrics that get stuck in my head

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK

Together we fall deeper into each other's eyes
And realize there is no other undeniable love like this.

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK

But the clock is getting louder
And the map is not shrinking at anytime.

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK TICK TOCK

We keep on loving each other,
Even though we know the end.
But in our head's it is worth it,
To know we will always have each other's love...
forever.

It's quiet
So, so quiet
I hear nothing but the tick tock
tick tock, tick tock
I live for the tick tock
tick tock, tick tock
Coming home, I see you
What a strong knot you have around your neck
I can almost see the veins burning into the fibers
What a precarious position your body swings
Tick tock, Tick tock
Your feet dangle
Obsessively grasping for the ground
Tick tock, Tick tock
You falter, you drop
Tick Tock, Tick Tock
My love for you will not stop
TICK Tock, TICK Tock
Wait, I'll be home soon
*TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK

Tick, Tock I can't stop staring at the clock
Waiting for this period to end
Tick, Tock 82 minutes
Until I'll see you again

Tick, Tock still staring at the clock
It's quite embarrassing to confess
That as i'm sitting here with 65 minutes left
All I'm thinking is when i'll see you next

Tick, Tock what's wrong with that clock?
It says I have to wait another half hour
I've been sitting her an eternity
Tick, Tock I know that clock is a liar

Tick Tock, my eyes plastered to the clock
Why can't time go faster?
Tick, Tock 15 minutes on the clock
Until I hear your laughter

Tick, Tock 5 more minutes on the clock
I'ts quite silly of me
That I measure time by when I'll see you again
Tick, Tock please go quicker, you stupid clock

Tick, Tock one more minute on the clock
Until our brief encounter
Tick Tock my heart beats like a clock
The bell rings as a reminder

Tick, Tock I'm done staring at the clock
And now, I'll search for your face
We spot each other but can only speak for a minute
Tick, Tock why can't time just stop?

Tick, Tock the teacher point to the clock
I'm always late for class
Tick, Tock it starts all over again
Just staring at the clock
Until I see you again

tick-tock
they must not sleep
tick-tock
now they talk about their broken dreams
tick-tock
now one of them screams
tick-tock
they are turning violent!
tick-tock
can they not survive the gas stimulant?
tick-tock
his vocal cords are torn!
tick-tock
God forbid,  if one of them becomes his clone!
tick-tock
The others don't react
tick-tock
They know they are getting monitored,  they don't wanna go back
tick-tock
We don't want to be freed, they said
tick-tock
On their own skins they fed
tick-tock
they killed soldiers six
tick-tock
the doctors do not have a fix
tick-tock
All 5 of them seemed pleasured by the pain
tick-tock
For this mystery,  who was to be blamed?
tick-tock
few of them died on the operation table
tick-tock*
they were all our monsters
covered by the illusion
inspired by a creepypasta i read today,  its called Russian Sleep Experiment
I am too terrified to post the link to that D:
Also, leave your comments below as this is my first horror piece, ever.

Tick tock, Tick tock, Tock Tock ticking
Clocks cluck, catching curious cries
Several seconds slide, slowly sticking
Eclectic evil ever eager to eat out eyes

Tock tock, tick tick Tock
danger dances down, depicting doom
Hands hold hearts heavily in hock
aren't all able to articulately assume?

Clock is currently counting costs
justifying jumps and juggling jacks
tabulating time that is tossed
lightening liberal lust and loving lax

tick tick tick, tick tick tick
destination is a detonation despised
tock tock tock, tock tock tock*
sheep sleep soundly shrouded, so surprised

Moments passed
Nothing.

Tick    tock    tick    tock

No single thought could fill his mind other than the fact
that he was in his house alone, that and the fact
that he was having a heart attack and there was no phone.

Tick    tock    tick    tock

The pain was unbearable but nothing like as bad
as the thought that filled his head at that moment
the thought of never seeing his beloved wife or children again.
The thought of never sharing a private moment before sleeping
and always seeming to be holding hands as they wake.

Tick    tock    tick    tock

Please! Somebody please!!

I don’t believe in you, but please help me
I don’t believe in you, but please help me

If you are there please help me. Please!

All I hear is the ticking of tha stupid clock.
With each step I take
With heart beat of my heart
With each inhale and exhale
All I hear is that stupid clock.
That clock is someone you know.
It’s someone you care about.
It’s me.
All the words that you say
And all the actions that you don’t do
Is making the clock go

Ticketytock
Ticketytock
Ticketytock

Molding me to fit your model
And dressing me up in my sister’s clothes
And putting her shoes on my feet
Make the clock go faster

Tickety tock
Tickety tock
Tickety tock

Let me live my own life
The way that I want to live it.
Let me be the person that I want to be.
Let me wear my own shoes
The same pair that I have been
Wearing my enire life.
Let me be me
So the clock will not go

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
That clock will drive me mad
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock
How many more glasses have I had?
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock
My vision is starting to blur
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock
Why is she sleeping with him
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock
How many times will my wife live in this lie?
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock
One more glass of wine before we dine.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock
She's lied to me again. Why must she live in sin?
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock*
May she never live again.
Inspired by my cover picture.
Tick tock its 12 'o clock and your smiling merely
tick tock its 1' o clock as tears pour from your eyes
tick tock its 2' o clock and everything is fine once again
tick tock its 3 'o clock and your late once more
tick tock its 4'o clock and your wondering what you did
tick tock its 5'o clock and everything is happy again
tick tock its 6' o clock and your wondering why your still here

tick tock its 8'o clock and your being pulled in every direction
tick tock its 9' o clock and toy have become someone you have grown to hate
tick tock its 10' o clock and its the best feeling in the world
tick tock its 11' o clock and you have just messed up again
tick tock its 12 'o clock ans everything starts over

Tick tock flick of the clock
Nurses come and nurses go
Tick tock flick of the clock
Needles in and needles out
Tick tock flick of the clock
Sun slips across the window pane
Tick tock flick of the clock
Life is down to ***, poo and pain
Tick tock flick of the clock
Deep down inside I am waiting
Tick tock flick of the clock
People talking, warm hands holding
Tick tock flick of the clock
Rhythmic pumping help me breath
Tick tock flick of the clock
Softly quiet, no pain just waiting for the end
Tick tock flick of the clock
Misty hazel eyes, whispered words gently pleading
Tick tock flick of the clock
So dragging back from fading lights
Tick tock flick of the clock
Warm hands holding, wife forever caring
Tick tock flick of the clock
Open eyes and live again
Tick tock flick of the clock
So love always won and the dark has gone away.
Written just after I left intensive care.

tick*           I cannot be the one who saves *you,
tock          for I cannot save myself.

tick           My happiness is not the issue,
tock          it's the darkness that breeds within.

tick           Dreams turn into Nightmares,
tock          always drowning in the end.

tick           Gasping for  breath,
tock          tight hands around my neck.

tick           A flashing white light
tock          before the darkness surrounds me.

tick           There's a monster in my closet,
tock          please don't let it in.

tick           My blank expression
tock          scares you.

tick          Well, I'm too *scared to  
tock          let you in.

tick           My thoughts are filled with turmoil,
tock          hidden from all I know.

tick           I don't know how to express myself but,
tock          I'm feeling rather numb

tick           You're all sitting,
tock          waiting for my explosion,









                                         ­                                       and time is running out...
Tick Tock.

Tick Tock.
I wait.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
You made a promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
Waiting on a promise.
A midnight promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting,
Wondering,
Will you make it to
Your midnight promise?

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
Standing at the door now.
Waiting for the moment;
Waiting for you to come for
My midnight promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
My heart feels ready now.
All it wants is you,
So I wait for it--
Wait for you to fulfill
The midnight promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
Will you ever come?
My heart is fleeting,
My head feels dizzy.
Am I ready?
Ready for it?
Our midnight promise?

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
Looking out the window,
Pushing out the dark curtains of
Doubt in my mind.
You promised.
I'm hoping, waiting.
This is
My midnight promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
I know that you must be coming,
But there is a shadow--
A shadow of doubt and fear.
Please come,
Come before this shadow
Destroys what is good in me
And burns the
Lover's midnight promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
I'm in a panic mood.
Less than a minute left.
Won't my friend,
My cherished,
My hero,
Keep his promise?
I remember he said he would.
He said it was
His midnight promise.

Tick Tock.
I'm waiting.
Silent, alone, doubting.
The clock has struck.
I look out, one last time.
Grievance ending as I catch
Your starry gaze.
I run,
Heart pounding,
Feet smacking-- suddenly sliding,
Falling into a midnight sun,
Waiting on a midnight promise.

Woman, you've got a heavy load
Trying to find that right toad
To kiss, but you've got the issues
Everybody's a joker and a prince
Everything comes with a price
Do you have what it takes?
Prince charming, but take a look deeper
He's a snake, a snake
This ain't a fairy tale
You know when a romance
Goes pretty stale
There's just no chance
Pretty Dress
Ball room dance
Bright full moon
Waiting for that perfect kiss
My queen looks for that prince charming
Lot of stress to take
No chance
Not a tock too soon
Tick Tock, Tick Tock

My Queen lost her prince charming oh no
Searching high and low
You can't get it back now
Wait a while
pop in a sad smile
You see what happens now
oh no...

There's that prince charming, but take a look deeper
He's a snake, a snake
This ain't a fairy tale
You know when a romance
goes pretty stale
There's just no chance.
Pretty Dress

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

Here comes the joker
With a smoker on the high sticks
Coming closer to give you a kick
in the rear, in the rear
give you that wake up call
and show you the world baby
I'm a joker and i have what it takes
I'm no snake and i'm the last one you'd ever call
I'm full of tricks
and you know I can pull
Walk in the room so high with a big smile
With me you're feeling like a kite but oh no...

There's that prince charming, but take a look deeper
He's a snake, a snake
This ain't a fairy tale
You know when a romance
goes pretty stale
There's just no chance.
Pretty Dress
Ball room dance
Bright full moon

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

Crash, oh no my queen lost her crown
When I had to let her go
Can't get her head on straight
She's all over the place
tipsy tipsy like a blind mice
What'cha gonna do now
Your evil sisters are out to get you
Steal the silver off the shining knight's armor
And you think everything's amour..but oh no

There's that prince charming, but take a look deeper
He's a snake, a snake
This ain't a fairy tale
You know when a romance
goes pretty stale
There's just no chance.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

You need to take a look at the mirror mirror in the wall
He's a snake, a snake that's what she call it
Let the joker show you the back door out of the castle
Escape all the drama and be on our way
A happy end story to it all
i'll heed to all your needs, just call

Tick tock tick tock
There goes the clock 

Busy with ticking away
Every second of the day
Giving a sound to time
Indicating day or nighttime

Tick tock tick tock
There goes the clock

Its hands are clapping 
While time is unwrapping 
Clapping on the beat
Every second never offbeat

Tick tock tick tock
There goes the clock

It seems to go so fast
When you're having a blast
Other times not at all
Time then just seems to crawl

Tick tock tick tock
There goes the clock

Again I give a big sigh
Trying hard to deny
That another day went by
Another day to say goodbye

Tick tock tick tock
There goes the clock

Tick-Tock
As time goes by
Moving along with a purpose

Tick-Tock
Ending the old
Beginning the young

Tick-Tock
Yielding to none
Stopping for nothing

Tick-Tock
Recording life
Creating eras
Continuing years

Tick-Tock
Embodiment of love
Creator of space

Tick-Tock
Running out
Spin into oblivion, but it won’t stop

Tick-Tock
Time is a mystery
But it creates history

Tick-Tock
Coming to an end
Moving to its final destination
Bringing everything with it

Tick-Tock
Builds a rhyme
A poem
A hymn

Tick-Tock
Ruler of space
Of earth
Of us

Tick-Tock
When it stops
So do we
And everything, that is

Tick-
A whirlpool of emotions comes crashing in
The rhythm of your heart beats out of tune
You control your time
When it’s up, you decide

-Tock
When you’re done
You stop the clock
Turn off the lights
And hear your last sound;
Though pleasant to the ear, dangerous as time
Tick-Tock
Your time only stops when you give up.
With no love in your heart, or hope in your soul, time folds in on itself.
Leaving you in a pocket, alone.

tick tock, tick tock,
the seconds
tick tock, tick tock,
the hours
tick tock, tick tock,
the days since you have left
i keep on hearing the ticking of the clock,
its slowly driving me insane,
reminding me how long it's been
tick tock,
the days
tick tock,
the weeks
tick tock,
the months since you've been gone,
out of my life,
away from me, away from everything
it hurts so much
my heart will no longer tick tock, tick tock, like the clock
my clock is missing a piece,
my missing piece is you
you made my clock tick tock

and now, it no longer makes a sound
Drew Vincent Jun 2013
Tick tock, tick tock
the clock clicks.
Seconds, minutes, hours pass
as I sit here thinking of you.

"Drew," his voice fills my thoughts
"Are you okay?
Do we need to go talk?"
My heart starts to ache.

The familiar red truck comes into view.
We were inside,
driving around as I complained about life.
He listened to my every word.

Tick tock, tick tock
the clock continues to click
tick tock, tick tock
the clock grows louder with every tick

Louder, louder, and louder.
The clock's clicking fills my ears
until I can't hear my own thoughts.
My heart beat quickens

Tick tock, tick tock
I grab my hair in clumps
and my vision blurs
Tick tock, tick tock*

I let out a scream,
running to the clock on the wall.
Clutching it in my hands,
my knuckles turn white.

Ripping the clock off the wall,
I let out a cry and throw it.
Hitting the ground,
the clock smashes into a thousand pieces.

Falling to my knees,
tears stream down my face.
Thoughts of you fill my mind,
Your voice rushes through my ears.

"I love you,
I miss you,
I will see you soon,
Love always and forever."

I sit down and lean my back against the wall.
Running my hands through my hair,
I whisper,
"Please come back soon."
Lee Banks Nov 2015
Music blares in my ears.
Maybe it’ll drown out the sound of the ticking clock. In those moments of silence between songs, I hear it louder than ever. Tick Tock, Tick Tock.
Once in a while an inspirational song comes on; telling me that I could be standing in the Hall of Fame and for a moment, I believe that I can get through this. The ticking loses its volume a bit.
Other times, it’s a song with a catchy beat and I throw my hands up and dance. I dance to the beat of the clock. Tick Tock, Tick Tock.  
Sometimes, it a song with lyrics I wish I could say in reality. I notice feeling regretful makes the clock tick louder. And last but not least comes the rap song. I forget everything as I try to keep up with the song. I always feel a sense of satisfaction when I manage to get the words right. In my own way, for those 4 mins 32 seconds, I beat the clock. Tick Tock, Tick Tock.
Oh! And I almost forget that awkward song in your playlist that you always have to explain. For me it’s a random French song. It always makes me reminisce and wish I could turn back the clock. I lose myself in my memories and before I know it, the song ends. The clock waits for no one. Tick Tock, Tick Tock.
I never realised I had so many emotions in my playlist. I turn of the music and attempt to continue with my work. I check my watch for the time and the incessant ticking haunts me again. My watch straps feel like shackles, even though my watch is digital.
Tick Tock, Tick Tock
