I heard the clock today, ticking again
And it took me back in time
When my afternoons were so empty
Sleepless and restless
Filled with thoughtless wandering,
Just creeping on people, sound asleep
One room to another
Wondering what got them so tired.
And waiting so eagerly for them to wake up,
so that they would dress me up
And I’d just run out play.
I went back to a time
Where friendships were much more innocent
My thoughts weren’t so much as thoughts than dreams,
head up in clouds, yet the mind not so clouded
All so black and white, not a trace of grey.
But hey! Wake up,
It’s evening again
The sleepy afternoon’s now gone.
The clock now ticks to tell me i’m late for class.
That my afternoons are no more restless,
They now, crave for some sleep.
And to remind me that my evenings
Aren’t three hours long play dates anymore
tough they wish to go back a decade
Where my mind was yet to be shaped,
Opinions were yet to be formed,
Stories were yet to be grey,
And the track of time was yet to be lost….
(Ironic that I am posting this right, because home quarantine has left me with too much XD)
