The day all clocks went wrong

a poem by Michelle Klemm, Germany - poetry writer, author, poet


Elisabeth
Don't you hear her knocking?
I'm hiding in my room.

Elisabeth
She enters the house and
walks up the stairs to you.

Elisabeth
Why are you lying in bed?
It's already afternoon.

I'm just resting – you say –
I'm really tired you know.
The girl was here just
a minute ago.

Elisabeth
You ignored me this morn
as I was asking you:

Elisabeth
Don't you get up today?
The judge is waiting for us.

Elisabeth
She'll take me away, but I
want this to be my home.

Elisabeth
It could have been the end
of being a foster child.

Elisabeth
So long have I been waiting
for this day to come.

Elisabeth
maybe it was far too long,
thus all the clocks went wrong.
