And then the cracks ran forth

Spreading like doubt

Sinking and sliding down the walls

The windows banged

The ceiling shuddered

There were too many secrets in that house

There was too much pain in that silence

Fate had not come to tick off its lists

This was the world, the universe and beyond striking again

Standing at my door

Behind a choice

Claiming it was time.
