Wristwatch – Nancy

Today we’re sharing the poem “Wristwatch” by Nancy. Enjoy!


Check the time on the clock

under the sign –

Visiting Hours Only.

People lie in wards finding ways to pass the time

but time is all they have

and it slips

slips

away.

Her wristwatch ticks in constant reminder.

The watch keeps its shape but the wrist wears away.

The once-fitting strap mocks and smiles, sly.

The wrist becomes thinner and

The watch becomes looser,

as time inevitably ticks away.
