Trauma looks like my kitchen clock.
The hours,
minutes,
they are dead
and the second hand stutters,
heartbroken.
I imagine every inconsequential twitch
is a plea for the freedom
it will never see again.
When its futile heart finally gives out,
I won't try to fix the timepiece
because after all its wasted sufferings,
allowing again such a disjointed tic
would be a deeper level of cruelty.
The prompt was "the second-hand of a clock" from =QuiEstInLiteris. The first few attempts were dreadful, until I remembered the poor clock behind me in the kitchen. It makes me sad to look at, as there is something dreadfully heartbreaking about a second-hand that tries to move forward, but can't.
