Tick Tock

The clock passes 1

Then 2

Then 3

Then 4

I stare at the paper

Not moving

Not speaking

My thoughts are a turmoil

Like a storm in my head

So loud, I hear it always

The silence is deafening

I wonder what to write

Tick Tock

I cannot focus

Everything blurs together

Like cheese in a fondue pot

Tick Tock

Sticky, they attach together

Until I can’t discern one from the other

Hi! I am Anja, a 16 year old from right outside of D.C. I enjoy taking photos and writing about people's perceptions of the world around them.
