Secret Human

There is a secret human that lives
Foul creature
Dirty ragged


The moment of eye crazed
Instant hard hitting realization
Amid a fiery argument


Hidden little thing
Lives in the shadows
Beneath badly lit windowpanes
Bolted and rusted old doors


The split second before fear
Reaches the brain, heartbeat in neck
When darkest terror comes suddenly at twilight


Scurries, shrouded
It grabs and snatches
At scraps left
Irresponsibly discarded behind


The instant of overwhelming, almost teary joy
Remembering something important
Feared forgotten


White eyes
In the darkness gleams
Secret human
Inside sleeps


The sudden sudden hate
That quickly fades
When envy strikes a soft heart


Now here look
Lives it
Tiny beast
Off us feeds.
