Alarm

Warren Jones

Thunder of annoyance,
fierce anger in its tone.

Silence gone, this split
moment of irritation.

Switched to snooze for ten more.
But you can’t turn off heartbreak.

The ticking clock comes out on top;
a one-sided argument.

The day I win the battle
will be the day I sleep through for good.
