Drumming Beat of the Third Line

Drumming Beat of the Third Line

The drumming beat of the third line

stubbed out

what the silence must mean

if hours before I was to blame.

.

Did you remember to make the appointment for the cat?

No, more silence.

.

Silence that slumbers into deep pillows

drowning out the day

the inconsistent ticking

the kitchen clock

what silence must mean to a person

with closed eyelids

who does not sleep.

One thought on “Drumming Beat of the Third Line

  1. I love the realistic feeling that comes from this poem.
    Your writing style…it’s really relatable.
    Insomnia described in such fine detail. I don’t know if that’s what you wrote it based upon, but I like it. It’s open to interpretation. That’s something my own writing will never quite have. I hint too much.
    I love realism. Following for more. 🙂
