Tick tock, tick tock.
  11 Noises regress dormant memories. 1
Of pleasurable evenings and crippling deformities.
One, two, three.
  10Numbers iterate their dominative names,2
Of countless lost moments, disqualified from the game.
Why? Why? Why?
Ringing through my veins, pumping abnormal intervals. 3
Inspiring confidence steadily shrivels.
Try again, try again
Vain attempts, wretched saviors never chipped the paint,
Outside light glistens through ever so faint. 4
Step, Step, Step
Devouring tales of unfathomable dreams,
 7  Drowning out pathetic screams. 5
Tick tock, tick tock, tick….tock, tick-
Bang! Silences the clock.
