Pause in Immortality
A most glorious bright black night,
A most silent noise
Two clocks of wooden masterpieces
ticking away in peaceful company
Softly do I listen with a pounding heart
Eternal music one beats along
The other echoes in agreement.
A most quiet busy night
Mother and brother hastily snoring away
Catching up on sleep while I sit and listen
Deafening does the clock move
Time makes its loud voice heard
Seven minutes past midnight, you say.
I choose to ignore you.
You twitch in annoyance
and tip toe along more slowly
Sending your timeless tune reverberating
throughout the room, throughout my body.
Why must you bother me so?
Allow me to sit in a vacuum
frozen in my own reality
while you pass me by with
your incessant chattering.
I shall be content
and you shall be yourself.
Independent of one another,
you and I shall pause in
