Drip away to nothing.. Poem

Clonk clonk clonk goes the lonely clock
In time with her old fragile tock
And then in chimes another beat
From heels upon her worn out feet
They carry her like deadened weight
The way a train may carry freight
No life, just passing through this place
Tears trickle down lines on her face
And drip away to nothing
Brushing past a painted smile
That kept her going for a while
Until it dripped away to nothing
All was gone
The dreams of him
Or little ones
That love may bring
They faded
And just dripped away to nothing
They were gone
