Alone

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

lonely winds, busted windows

steady breaths, the only sound


silent steps, flickering eyes

sound of creaking, standing frozen


another creak, not alone

slowing moving, creeping forward


heart beating, quietly hiding

hands shaking, eyes shut tight


heavy steps, two sets of breaths

can’t be found, too much at stake


hooded eyes, malicious grin

scanning room, finding nothing


danger leaving, fear lingers

cautiously crawling, no more threat


no more risk, no more peril

deserted town, alone once more

First published by Scar Publications in Down in the Dirt Volume 164 then again in The Flickering Light (a collection of 2019 January to June issues)
