Tick Tock

She sat in the dark

No sounds in the house

Except the ticking of the clock

Marking another moment

Full of hopelessness

She was despondent

Afraid to try anymore

And at the end of her rope

Some days she looks back

On that day in her life

The one that was almost her last

How she climbed out of that hole

With the help of a friend

Starting with one simple sentence

“What’s wrong?”
