I am possessed

08 Oct

Who is this? (Photo by John Scully)

I am minding my business
You’re keenly watching
crouched and ears pointed
My dark stories bore
a black panther

I am not paying attention
You are always alert
The dark cloud is a rain cloud
Screaming that it’s a huge storm
you leap fiercely towards the sky

Knocking me out
you enter through my ear
My eyes turn green and wild
My nails grow into hard claws
I snarl, scratch and tear
A cat in your jungle

Panthers have no fear
I can bring the whole house down
Break bones one by one
Grind these people into powder
Show them who I am
It is me who is the King

I have rattled him
She shakes in fits
I am possessed
but have nothing to gain
I step back
Your dark, foul and bitter presence
vacates

    Very sinister and spooky, strong poem.

      Thanks for the note. Yeah, good people including myself over react and can be rather scary…
