Behind me

is a monster

adorned in shadows

with autumn eyes.

His humid breath snags my neck

His claws of thunder clap

as he chases me.

My legs ignite into a run

My heart prowls its ivory cage

as I attempt escape.

The sky is scowling and heavy

The ground is scabbed and lonely.

When my legs crumple

When my heart softens to a tiptoe

I turn my head

to welcome

solitude.
