What My Father Takes Away

Tick – Tock
Only days now,
‘til I lose your hand
in the foggy mist of the future.

Tick – Tock
Only hours now
‘til you get ripped away,
taking all of my being with you.

Tick – Tock
Only minutes now
‘til my world spins,
each turn adding to the chaos.

Tick – Tock
Only seconds now
‘til I’m thrown to the ground-
knees scraped and bloodied – writhing to get up.

Tick – Tock
One second now
‘til I hear myself scream,
yelling for you to save me.
