Hidden UnderneathThe darkness of the night that hides,
With something unseen that lurks in the shadows.
You yearn for the light,
But this demented creature has other plans.
This creature is unlike any other.
But rough as sand paper.
Not warm and soft,
But cold and solid as a rock.
And not comforting,
But sinister and demonic.
If you stand still,
You can feel it.
It brushes against your cheek,
Its touch sends shivers down your spine.
But no matter how hard you try to hide your fear,
It knows, and can sense the sweat forming on your brow.
Because that's what this creature feeds on,
You could try and out run it,
But you can't see.
It is as if there is a blindfold over your eyes,
Keeping you planted where you are.
You could try and stand up for yourself,
But this demonic thing whispers threats in your ear.
This, in turn, makes you stay.
Because even though you think it's a dream,
And that you will wake up soon,
The actuality is that you aren't dreaming.
You came to this place on your own,
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
