The only sound left to hear

October 9, 2008
By Jolene Walczak, Milwaukie, OR

Tick tock tick tock
As me heart pounds harder as he pulls in
Once again driving insane
I think he had a bad day at work again
As he enters the house in an out of control rage
Thump thump thump
As he gets closer to me
Ill try to get out of his way
As he pulls my hair
Screeching to get away
Smack, thud, bang, boom
As he walks away leaving me gasping for air
Thump thump thump
Tires burning and gravel flying
Soon the only sounds left to hear
Tick tock
