Looming Stranger

Knock!
Knock!
Knock!
“Let me in!”
Peep

I can’t
I can’t touch the cold hard knob
Refuse to unhook the latch
Just close your eyes
It will go away

Breathe
In and Out

Bang!
Bang!
Bang!
“Open the door!”

Leap
I won’t
I won’t leap to the mountains
Refuse to take a step

Block the noise
Clear your mind
Relax
An illusion
That is all
Voices of your imagination

Steady your breath
One
Two
Three

“I’m coming back!”
Boom!

Compose yourself
It is over
Gone
For now

Snore Whistle Blow

Snore
Whistle
Blow

Rhythmic sounds
Sounding one after the other

Snore
Breath blocked
Evidence of exhaustion

Whistle
Effortless sound
Granted by the lips

Blow
Cooling of tea
Crafting beats of melody

Beating like drums
Guitars strum
Music born
From its simplicity
