The Sounds of SilenceCategory: Poetry

The clock ticks.
Silence.
The clock tocks.
Footsteps.
Ticks.
Slow, shuffling feet.
Tocks.
The rattle of keys.
Tick.
A lock turning.
Tock.
A drawer opens.
Tick.
A sharp metal click.
Tock.

The clock ticks.
A door opening.
The clock tocks.
Voices and laughter.
Ticks.
Sharp, clicking heels.
Tocks.
Loud, thumping shoes.
Tick.
A laugh cut short.
Tock.
A gasp.
Tick.
A sob.
Tock.

The clock ticks.
Music playing.
The clock tocks.
Quiet weeping.
Ticks.
A pastor speaking.
Tocks.
A gunshot echoes soundlessly.
Tick.
For him, there is silence.
Tock.
It is empty. Black.
Tick.
There is only one sound.
Tock.
