Time Keeper

By SinisterSinner

Bring the clock back,
Let it's springs unwind,
The time keeper waits for no one,
The hour hand strikes 12,
And the universe begins to move in reverse,
I am lost to the hands,
The hands on this clock that keeps ticking,
What is, 
Becomes what was,
Tick tick,
Goes the clock,
Tick tick,
Time is all I've got,
Surely one day this clock will stop,
When it does,
No one will know,
Time is of thee essence,
And now i must go.
