Time-Suck

Stop the clock

The minute hand close to the one
and the hour hand on the four

I knew these batteries would run out
maybe closer to the end of me than now

but you have made me see the merit
in choice.

Maybe choices feel like worse
because you get to choose between awful and painful

but there is still a choice.

Maybe choices are meant for those you love
because their lives should not be void of choices

when I am afraid to make them.

I knew these batteries would run out
but I didn’t expect you to come along

and pull a better me out at the last second.
