The poem is below.


Far Away

He was so worked up with her constant yelling,
that he packed to live in a remote motel.
There were coyotes' howling and sounds of water
wind mills all around him. He found comfort
in loud sounds that didn't seep into his skin,
so much that he couldn't feel his nerves.
His wife wasn't always loud;
she began when alcohol drove him further
away from her.
She was loud because she wanted remnants
of his conscience to hear her....

Reading this makes me wish you'd continued it! I love the way you gave her side of the situation in the last two lines! Janice

Greetings, Janice. In fact that's the reason I wrote the two last lines that way; to change the tides on the characters. Thank you so much for reading and enjoying my piece!! *^_^*
