Poem || The Ticking Time Bomb

The Ticking Time Bomb

A man sitting infront of a clock
Emotions that rupture

I’m a ticking time bomb there’s no much difference between I and the ticking clock, the only thing revealing is that I show red lines.

I’m a ticking time bomb I make no noise before I burst forth in violence. You’d hear the tick tock tick tock resonance.

You’d see no steam nor smoke before I explode in silence, and with time

 it accumulates in speed and very quickly the countdown kicks off.

I’ll take you unawares with a rupture in rage and anger 

when i let my emotions out with full force, it becomes a devastating explosion that can last for years eternal.

Never forget, I’m a ticking time bomb. Don’t turn my switch on.
