The pendulum swings
back and forth,
back and forth,
the pendulum swings

Click click click
the clock counts forward
simple five note tune
the hands striking forward

The pendulum swings
back and forth,
back and forth,
gently hitting the sides

Midnight tolls the tune
Opheliac dreams capture all
chanting in time with
click and clack of the tolling clock

The pendulum swings
back and forth,
back and forth,
the pendulum swings

fantasy images
sandstorm desolation
loveless fixation
hopeless beings

The pendulum swings
back and forth,
back and forth,
the pendulum swings

Breathless awakening
ring and chime of tolling clock
rising bodies of sleepless thoughts
chilling bones.

The pendulum swings
back and forth,
back and forth,
the pendulum swings
Happy Holidays have a dark poem on me.
