The Noise

The Noise
by Alex Lewis

What's that noise?
What is it? What is it?

I know what the noise is.
I know, do you?

You hear it for your whole life.
You're never without it.

Every breathing, every living day...
DA-DUM-DA-DUM can hear it.

When it stops, you won't like it.
When it stops, you won't know it.

Does the noise annoy? Does it make you cringe?
Do you want it to stop? I advise it not!

The noise will never stop until it is too late.

The noise has finally stopped.
To the ground, your body has dropped.
Say hello to Death for me
For the noise has set you free.

    In a way reminds me of 'The Telltale Heart, ' by Poe. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
