Longcase Clock by Abigail Hurst

Longcase Clock
Ticks-Tocks
One.
Two.
Three.
Four.
I hear you slip through my door.

Focus on Counting.
Seven.
Eight.
The darkness begs you,
“Seal her fate”

Breathing labors.
Twelve.
Thirteen.
Trapped under covers.
Strangled in sheets.

Fifty-eight.
Fifty-nine.
Begin to lose…
Track of time.

Sixty.
One minute down.
A tear struggles free.

One.
Two.
Hold my breath.
Three.
You rip into me.
