All is quiet, glancing fearful at the wall
The clock tells me five minutes
Five more minutes of disquiet freedom
The table is set
Dinner is ready and served
The T.V. is rotated
The proper amount of degrees
His slippers are by the door
Two inches apart, turned outward
The Sports section lied folded
Left over right, five inches from
His favorite beer mug
Sitting quiet at the clock
Slices my freedom into seconds
Into the past
One minute
Thirty seconds
Ten seconds
The key sounds in the door
And my captor walks in the house

ewwwwww....a whole different aspect. Reminds me to kiss my wife when I get home. An excellent alternate view.

Once I was brilliant, now I no longer shine, but the twinkle in my eye speaks of another time.

What a position that I'm glad I'm NOT in! Well done, Dear 'Cat!

You depict, with this, an all too real scenario for many souls...it is such a shame, that such happens. Very well written, love.

Thanks for the reminder that there are worse things than loneliness. *S* Well done!
