A Guest Poem by Laura A.
You don’t recall when it happened – the shift between you
But it’s there, unsaid, unspoken
You leave it alone, hoping, willing it to go away
But it grows, like a web
The feelings scare you
And you try to avoid him yet he is everywhere
He whispers that he wants you
And you can barely breathe – he waits for your response
You are paralysed
This is not going to happen
You need to run, think, escape
But you don’t
And so it begins.
