Secret Human

There is a secret human that lives
Inside
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.
