A.P.I.H.N.E.O.Y.X.N.E.T.

there's this sound
it's one we hear all the time
one, two, three, four, five
low and intimidating
will it click at two
will I hear something new at three
can i get through four and five
then high pitched and beautiful
or high pitched and desperate
answer, please answer
please don't answer
i don't want to tell the sound
my secrets
but i know it will set me free
so between one and two
i pray for an answer
between three and four
i'm desperate for silence
after five
there's a little bit of hope
and then disappointment
and then complacency
