Clock

pocket-watch-1637392_960_720

I know this is gonna lie

motionless, emotionless, lifeless,

may be today, tomorrow or at any time,

while working, while walking or talking,

when its corroded, eroded rustic machine,

lacking supply of red oil, a block of its entangled wires,

cries louder: click – clock, click – clock, click-clock, click…

and suddenly, too suddenly, without letting anyone know,

stops.

  1. A doctor once told my mother (who suffered from heart disease) that each heart will beat only a certain number of times. None of us knows how many beats we’ve been allotted. That makes how we choose to spend our time all the more important.
