It swam,
On shore – towards me
It scared me;
“Does it come in harm ?”

Betrayals,
Being stood up –
Never given priority;
Used – it was now scary

The flicker of warmth;
I was terrified –
Mental breakdowns, a habit
Emotional torments – routine

Thus,
When this thing came crawling
I stepped back – terror struck
The gap is closing – ever so slow

Goosebumps
And scared eyes
