Look at the clock


Tickle the seconds to get some moments of Unrestrained laughter & every minute will

Help you to playfully catch your breath Instead of passing you by with another sigh

Of discontent or mere approval


The heart is ticking for you

Your clock *tick knock* not tick tock

Because with every beat the heart

Whispers to you the secrets of your mind

*tick knock knock tick tick knock* if you Listen you will become faster the way you Breathe tells you if you listen to yourself or if your heart will hysterically keep knocking yelling:Open the damn door!Open up to me please!Why do you hold your breath? Why don't you breathe right?! Open up to me*knock knock knock tick knock knock knock tick tick tick knock...*


while you keep yourself busy with what needs to be done and the clock outside yourself enslaves you!


Forget the secrets of your mind

for a second let me show you

what happens in a blink of an eye

take a deep breath in


that's how your lovely heart is being touched while your lungs expand and your abdomen gladly awaits for its turn to help you push the consumed air out while you feel the rush of your quickly unappreciated exhalation


Because after you completely empty your lungs you hold your breath a little longer in order to enjoy the rush and that's how you get all caught up in your thoughts and your heart feels lonely again


Oh you restless aspiration you never ending allusive inner hunger: The clock is ticking make it happen!You have no time!Now or never!Come on!Tick tock tick tock you are running out of time again!
