Tik Tok

Tik tok, tik tok
I whisper…………..
‘That must be the clock’

Tiny feet scuttle in the hall
I whisper…………..
‘That’s just the mice, going up the wall’

Boards creak in the floor
I whisper…………..
‘That’s just time, shuffling down the corridor’

Wind rattles the window screen
I whisper…………….
‘That’s the 6 o’clock news, trying to get in’

Sheets rustle on our bed
I whisper…………..
‘Let’s make love instead’
