The clock's still moving slowly,
The time keeps grinding on,
Its been so many days now,
So long that you've been gone,

But time keeps moving onwards,
And I'm still waiting here,
And with every passing second,
I'm wishing you were near,

I gaze out of my window,
And the world's alive outside,
But I'm still trapped here waiting,
Your eternal hidden bride,

And time keeps ticking onwards,
And still I'm waiting here,
Still with every passing second,
I'm wishing you were near,

My computer screen is empty,
Just as empty as my heart,
I just keep losing substance,
Every moment we're apart,

Yet time keeps ticking onwards,
And still I must wait here,
With every agonising second,
I'm wishing you were here,

The clock hands have stopped moving,
And I have lost all hope,
The time is ever changing,
Yet I just sit here and mope,

The time keeps ticking onwards,
And I am waiting here,
As the seconds keep on passing,
You're absense becomes more clear,

Finally I see your name,
And I feel so newly alive,
Why did it have to take so long,
For you to just arrive?

And the time still ticks onwards,
But now I just dont care,
The second's moving swifter,
Now that you are there,

But you are not as I remembered,
You are not nearly so great,
Not worth the time spent waiting,
Not worth you being late,

You were not all that I wanted,
An illusion to my eyes,
You were not all I expected,
My heart now empty of the lies,

So no more time spent waiting,
For you who'll never come,
No more time spent waiting,
My imprisonment is done,

And the hours keep on going,
But I won't wait for you,
If youre allowed to live your life,
Then I will live mine too.

    Wow, I don't know what to say...I am speechless.....that was perfect. I read in your profile that we should not expect anything great but this was masterpiece. It was truely flawless. I really enjoyed it and I loved the rhyming. It flowed so beautifully. I did not expect the twist that you added of him not being worthwhile to wait on. That was very clever. I really loved the ending. This poem is definately going to be added to my faves. Great Job 5/5
