Burned at both ends,

thought train derails.

Time stops but tick remains

a midnight metronome.

Long minutes stretch
from small hours.

Start catches stop.

Hello Kath,
This little piece attracted my attention for a couple of lovely lines.
The tick remaining after the clock had stopped and start catching stop.
I only wish it had been longer, Well done! Graham.
