clocks

lights go out and i can’t be saved
tides that i tried to swim against
you’ve put me down upon my knees
oh i beg, i beg and plead
come out of things unsaid,
shoot an apple off my head
trouble that can’t be named,
tigers waiting to be tamed
you are, you are
confusion never stops,
closing walls and ticking clocks
come back and take you home,
i could not stop, that you now know
come out upon my seas,
curse missed opportunities
am i a part of the cure,
or am i part of the disease?
