Tick-Tock

I complained that time seemed to be moving so fast–
Another month has passed,
Time seemed to have been wasted,
Like a faucet left opened.

I struggle to recall what happened yesterday,
Or the days before yesterday,
I donโ€™t even recall the earlier of today–
It all just seems so far away

But today, time seemed to have stopped
And suddenly I hear every drop,
Of water wasted and lost,
While the two sticks were frozen inside the clock.

I much prefer it when I didnโ€™t notice the time,
With its loud tick-tocks and chimes–
Let yet another day pass without another sound,
Or wake me up when my soul has been found.
