The second hand ticks
as these words begin to fail
when everything falls apart,
I find myself just sitting here
A broken string of pearls,
just another example
of this disorganization I’ve fallen to.
On my own I’m absolutely nothing.
Reading and re-reading,
all I find serves as no escape
from this confusion I’ve found.
If there were one, it’d be you.
but as the second hand ticks
and these words begin to fail,
when everything falls apart
I’m left with nothing to lean on.
