The Noise


The Noise
by Alex Lewis

What's that noise?
DA-DUM-DA-DUM
What is it? What is it?
BA-BUM-BA-BUM

I know what the noise is.
DA-DUM-DA-DUM
I know, do you?
BA-BUM-BA-BUM

You hear it for your whole life.
DA-DUM-DA-DUM
You're never without it.
BA-BUM-BA-BUM

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

When it stops, you won't like it.
DA-DUM-DA-DUM
When it stops, you won't know it.
BA-BUM-BA-BUM

Does the noise annoy? Does it make you cringe?
DA-DUM-DA-DUM
Do you want it to stop? I advise it not!
BA-BUM-BA-BUM

The noise will never stop until it is too late.
DA-DUM-DA-DUM
STOP! STOP! STOP!
BA-BUM-BA-BUM

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.

    The beating of your heart...
    This provides an interesting build up.
    In a way reminds me of 'The Telltale Heart, ' by Poe. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
