Linda Uzoma

Tick, Tock
That annoying sound
The sound that tells you you’re wasting time
Tick, Tock
The sound reminding you that you don’t have time to waste
That you may not get another chance to do this
Tick, Tock
The sound pounding in your head
As you wait another day
Letting him pass by
Not getting the chance to tell him
What you need to tell him
Tick, Tock
You’re almost out of time
You need to tell him
You’re not going to get another chance
“Aye guys, meet my new girlfriend”
Beep, beep, beep, beep…
Time’s up
