I stand, like a thief, trying to pick
The lock of your privacy - your mind.
It's the knowledge of you I seek.
I am willing to take the chance
And pay in advance
For the treasures I may not find.
You hear me talk, and you watch me squirm
Under your silence, like a worm.
You play with me, like a mouse plays with a cat...
Maybe, it's all in my head.
Very nice, it looks like you took great care in the wording.ReplyDelete
I very much like the consonance of 'pick..lock...seek.'ReplyDelete
And the unexpected reversal of 'mouse plays with a cat...'
Please post some more poems.
And by the way, ever thought of writing a novel or story?
