Downstairs

Downstairs

The dark morning has come. I can hear it downstairs. I can see the alarm clock blinking and I think the power must have gone out during the night. I know the door to my bedroom was shut and locked before I went to bed. It hangs open now.

I can hear it downstairs.

The sunlight has begun to slowly ease through the window. I can't focus. My body is sluggish from a deep dreamless sleep. I hear something fall, shattering across the wooden floor downstairs. A voice creeps into my ear.

I've heard it before, this deep-throated voice. Its weight hangs in my head as I lift my body from the bed. Ignore it and it will go away. There is a peaceful place in my head if I can just reach it in time. I have to get up.

That name, ringing in my ear. Don't think it. I don't want to see it. I feel the ice force itself through my heart as I close my eyes. My breathing deepens and I look up toward the door and take my first step of the day. \

I can hear it downstairs.

It is always the one thing you don't want to see face to face. It is what makes you wake up sweating inthe middle of the night, and what keeps you from going back to sleep.
