They Had A Squeak In Them

by krys123

Being alone didn't worry him
 but being here did.
 Something about this place
 that caused his nerves to rattle
 and his breathing to become heavy.
 It was like waiting in a long line
 that was moving so slow,
  like standing in a police line up,
 not that he ever did.
The voices he heard
 came from all directions
 and they were even growing above him.
he felt frightened at first
 when it came his time
 he realized that this was it.
 Like he felt like he was going to be sentenced;
 and he was.
 One at a time, in front of him,
 there were people with elation
 and others screaming.
 Some crying and howling
for another chance to be appraised
by this all holy adjudicator.
 But this person's answer was stern,
and for some the outcome was dire.
 He was next, he felt the goosebumps
 on his skin seem to vibrate
  and bubble up like raindrops on water,
 in a tingling way.
 It was strange as he did hear things
 inside of his head
 and not from his ears,
 a pounding voice,
 as the conciliator
 told him it was all right to go.
He felt joyous elation
that he had never felt before,
 and then he laughed, as it seemed
 he heard the gates
 had a squeak in them.
