I Am… In Time.

I.
I Am.

tick tock
tick tock

I am the spark in my mother’s eyes

tick tock

I am the pure soul, absorbing

tick tock

I am the hero, riding into the sunset, enemy’s head on my pike

tick tock

I am you… for the moment, when you read my words

tick tock

I am the teacher, bringing light to your eyes

tick tock

I am the center of myself

tick tock

I am the wounded, crawling at your feet

tick tock

I am the fading, struggling to leave an imprint

tick tock

I am my shadow

tick tock
tick tock

I Am.
I am all.

tick…

I will be none.

tock.

  1. wicked cool…love the sounds of the clock through out….and the array of images….my two fav come right after each other….I am the hero, riding into the sunset, enemy’s head on my pike….vicious….and then i am you when you read….that line is so very cool…like this much…smiles.

  2. I wonder if we would hear the very last ‘tock’ or the tick would be the end… Fascinating. Gripping read, very vivid. The lines Brian quoted are the ones that stand out to me too. Yuck on the head on the pike mind you..lol
    Really enjoyed this 🙂

    • thank you for checking in! your description of the split ending is what i was going for.
      absolutely loved your poem! if i could, i would bathe in the first stanza… 🙂

  3. The ‘tick tock’ certainly shows how quickly time moves along. You have condensed life in this poem. And I like the ‘struggling to make an imprint.’ Something we all, I think, strive for somehow.
