The Sequel To The Day The Clock Stopped - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

her eyes are fixated on
the hands of the clock
on the wall
unlike her racing thoughts
time seems to have stopped
a feeling of loneliness
runs through her veins
as she wonders if
she has crossed over
the line to insanity

gripping her rosary
she begs for God's mercy
pleads for her salvation
things move in slow motion
as she realizes
her prayer was answered
she lifts herself up
and slips out of bed
ready now to face the world
