Tick Tock

by Ernest Johnson   Oct 14, 2011


Rhymes have their reasons
Time has its place
All anguish bestowed
On a soul�s fall from grace

At the darkest of dark
When the clock chimes midnight
The fears of the wretched
Fuel the devil�s delight

Each click of the clock
Greatens a freighting despair
Tick after tock
Twelve o�clock
Is almost there

    First of all I'd recommend you to remove those characters because they're just distracting the reader. I actually like the idea behind this poem and the way you presented it. This poem may be short, but yet its message is powerful. I liked the rhyme, but the flow could be a bit better. Overall you might want to edit a few parts, but you definately penned a good poem.
