I sat down and wrote this today because I wanted to put something on the Flow site. Contributions of any sort seem to have dried up and that is very sad. I look most days to see if there is anything new to read and feel very low when I see that the last person to post did it a month ago.

TIP TAP

The frantic tap began again
Upon the cottage window pane
His gaze was steady
His eyes were dull
Just waiting for
A final lull

Just two more taps
And then she left
His pain grew worse
He felt bereft
He felt she was tied to his heart
And slowly pulling him apart

The rope would stretch
And finally break
And then his heart
Could stop its ache
His mind might stop its yearning strain
To hear her tip tap on the pane
