Ticking Time BombMy heart's beats tell time,
More Like This
Its steady rhythm is counting down
Beginning from the day of my birth
I am like a ticking time bomb,
One day I will combust and explode,
I hear the beats all the time,
Feel the blood rushing under my skin,
As my timer ticks on never ending,
waiting for the time, when time runs out.
It's not like I look forward to the end,
Sometimes though it seems I feel it coming,
Rushing in like a train on battered tracks,
Then turning as if on a railroad switch,
As it them makes its way out of my sights.
Death is so very near yet so far away,
But one day I will join its ranks,
Leaving to enter that which is unknown,
And I will stand in silence,
Without the ticking ringing in my ears.
