skinwalker

August 23, 2012

I’ve been through all mythical creatures

all brooding beasts of the beyond

but failed to catch a better glimpse

of the one in stealth within you.

I heard a lion roar

saw a minotaur fume

and even felt a wolf

whoosh by my own.

Which of them were you,

my silent companion?

What precious skin do you own?

perfectly camouflaged

beneath casual daywear

I cannot

may not

conquer the fear

silence the shame

of looking right at you

of learning your name.

Fight or flight?

August 14, 2012

Which will it be?

I heard the sound

Your steps made

In doubtful hesitation-

You sent the light,

unleash your hound

I’m not afraid

to let it bite.

-because this time,

this time, my knight,

I’ll stand my ground

I,

choose the fight.
