As the time ticked chiming it’s regular sound of presence, tick tock, tick tock,
I noticed the hours pass by and the world did just that too,
I observed each passerby, every single one of them, just incase they noticed me too.
The old, the young, the small, the hurt, the happy and those who showed no emotion at all too.
Immersed in their lives, and busy with these beastly, booming little gadgets, operating like machines, from whom they seemed to require refuelling very often,
They held them with such love and affection, incase it’s feelings were hurt, or felt lost or lonely by their absence.
Suckling on their senseless minds as the time continued to remind them of its presence, ‘tick tock, that it was still existent, just like those around them too.
I continued looking on maybe I’d garner even a ‘hi’ today, if that was too much of an expectation, maybe a smile, even that would work today.
The sun began to disperse reminding me, maybe it was time for me to go home too,
But I continued to wait, maybe just maybe I’d finally get to speak to someone today. . .
