Footsteps

 

Footsteps awaken
your presence at the door.
Gusts of wind
rush into my bones
highlighting half moons.
You see them
you shake your head
and you hover unanswerable questions.
I stretch my mouth
and mock the creation
in your head.
When will you know
that fear is my companion?
When will you know
that without it
I’m motionless
Dead!
