Consumed 

~Locked~

Locked…is it locked?

I remember pressing the button but…..
What did I do?
I came in, kicked off my shoes,
started a pot….
But-

Chaos….

Locked!

Shower taken, tv on,
dinner ordered….
But I wonder….
Is it locked?

Think!

Did I press the button?
What did I do?
Okay, one more time
and I swear i’m through….

Locked!

Finally, it’s time..
I’m exhausted-
run down…
I just can’t remember….
something bad will happen….

Concentrate!

Locked….is it locked?

Just once more….
back outside I go…
This is it, and I promise i’ll know…

Locked!

What time is it? 0343….
sleep evades me…
Thoughts consume me,
But there’s one roaring louder than the rest….

Locked….is it locked?
