Long after midnight, tick, tock, tick tock,
imagination's vision as you stare at the clock.
 
Imagined specters haunt you, memories haunt you,
feel the vise of the past closing in, of the future too.
 
Of the past, won't change it, of the future, cannot know.
Now you're up, not alert, and writing this poem.
 
Won't find any answers in the words you compose,
it's just a vicious cycle, round and round I suppose
