killing time: a poem

time is a thief, but I am a murderer.

the clock hands are my noose, slowly strangling the life out of minutes and seconds as they flash by

eyes burn with regret as I stare, watching them die in the blue glow of a cell phone screen,

those seconds will never come back, but my remorse perishes with them, numbness taking over.

their blood on my hands, I ignore their cries, too sad to look up, too tired to feel pain.

in the war against laziness, no one is entirely innocent, we all play a part in killing time.
