Should Have Listened

Hold our your hands.
Try to capture the water.
Notice it trickling through your fingers.
It's all familiar to you.
The world has seeped through the cracks before.
We are all here, watching.
Pacing, in the dark.
Now, we are anxiously awaiting for it to repeat.
I will not be alarmed when this happens.
I've been expecting it.
Have been setting down rules.
You've all disobeyed me.
So, it's just a matter of time.
I can hear it beginning.
As the sound drags on.
I get ecstatic.
The sound may startle you.
I'm watching you all fall into the crevices.
It's satisfying.
It was just a matter of time.
-Amber Barnes.
