Observations of Time

5 P.M

The delight of the end of the work dayQuickly replaced by the dread of the journey homeThe streets are filledTraffic flowing like molassesDrivers blinded by haze of the afternoon sunLost in their worldWith lingering thoughts of work or what waits at homePerhaps loud music or the afternoon newsTwo cars smashed togetherCan’t help but catch their […]

9 A.M

Tik-tock I stare at the clock After an eternity A minute passes The day has just begun The end seems far away Sitting at my desk Trapped in between four white walls A computer screen blankly looks at me My coffee sits Growing cold I am desperate to survive Till my next  break Tik-tock I […]

6 A.M

A sliver of light sneaks through the curtains Birds begin to sing The morning is tranquil Eyes begin to crack open Ever so slightly The loud buzz of an alarm clock breaks through My body and mind beg Just five more minutes Slowly My eyes begin to open To the hopes of this day Or […]
