Favorite Quote:
Our sweetest laughter,
With some pain id fraught,
Our sweetest songs are those
that tell of saddest thought.

Tock
The clock swings.

The bell rings.

My thoughts race,
My feet quicken pace

Step (step)
Step (step)
Step (step)

It’s getting close,
I hear it behind me.
Will this be over?
I want to flee, please.

Breaths are heavier
Movements,
Delicate feathier.

Dark we face,
A most horrifying place
Time has stopped.

Tic


Tock?

POP.

It goes.
It flows.
From the tips
Of its toes.

Is it with me?
What has happened?
Am I free?
Or still trapped?

Step…

Step…


Step…
