about a creeper

you know the type

first they act like a friend,

they they disappear, then they reappear

when you are low, down, and downer

plagued and troubled by insecurities…

watch out!

you and your friends are always

transitional prey until he moves to some other


he’s a creeper, and he craves the tension

within your mind, it sits heavily —

a secret whispering mouth, sends

its message only to your ears

you try to outrun him

people won’t believe you

so you hide in dark rooms

you get up and run when

gossip-mongers sell fish at your door

but you’re never    quite       fast                   enough

you are afraid of what

forgiveness brings.
