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
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.
