The Passage of Time

tic tok
     tic tok
           tic-tic tok


time drags like the hand on my clock

    tic-tic tok

it got caught, but not stuck

it won't stop but it moves only bit by bit

    tic
        tic


but looking back,
time flies 
years gone
moments
lost
memories
forgotten
tics turn to beeps and dings and taps and clicks
the clock hands whirl and twirl and spin and time zips by without a second thought

I can't tell what time will do
it can surge and dash and dive and flash
but when I look at that hand on that clock
it crawls and creeps,
lingers and hangs,
shuffles
and tics

    tic
        tic
            tok
