I'm surrounded by these walls,
Watching as the petal falls,
Waiting,listening as God calls,
For whom the bell tolls,
Looking at nothing as the clock hand rolls,
One o'clock, eight o'clock,
As the clock goes tick tock,
Listening to the sound,
Of my feet tapping the ground,
To the rythm, making a rhyme,
To the beat of time,
It should be a crime,
I'm sour as a lime,
I'm having a thought,
A memory of a time I fought,
Remembering a student that I taught,
A lesson to,
But she forgot it so soon,
I'm going crazy as a loon,
Am I real or a toon?
Am I all alone,
Am I a clone,
I guess I'll never know,
My life is like a dramatic T.V. show,
Could this really be?
Is it happening to me?
Do I really care?
Do I want to share,
My feelings in this way?
Not now but maybe one day,
And if someone asks that's what I'll say.

(If you re-read this one, you'll catch some missing letters.) I loved the sentiment of this one!

I love this one, I've never been able to capture a tempo like that with my own thoughts. Very well done.

Thank you for your compliment. I find that life has a rhythm and I just sort tap into that. And I just let my mind take over from there.Thank you for your encouraging words and I will keep trying to come up with new poems for you to comment on. Please keep focusing on your thoughts and let the rhythm find you. And you will find yourself writing the way you want to.
