Poem. That Stare!

Updated on November 23, 2011

That Stare

I watched her

As she stared

Across the room

With eyes

Transfixed

As if warning

Of this

impending

doom

Not visible

To the human

eye

Affixed

Possibly awaiting

Anyone

Who dares

cross that

Stare.

As if forbidden

and relayed

by subliminal

Messages

No one ever

Crossed

her path

No one dare

Not for the

Duration

of time

I stood there.

Myself

Motionless

But alas

As if injected

With a shot

Of curiosity

I developed

the courage

to venture

Advance

To her space

Cautiously

So as not

To have her

see my

Face

I approached

But she was

different

As if knowing

The movements

Of everything

Around her

By some extra

Sensory perception

I heard my name

Sounding

Like this faint

Yet very high

decibel

Deafening

Sound

But it was not

I was some how

Hypnotized

Now I guess

Awaiting

the command

That was coming

It was my

Name I heard

But could

not answer

It’s impossible

I was too far

Away.

And there was

music

How, how could

I be hearing

I seem only me

That was

No one else

Was even

looking

Her way

Are they all in

Some trance

Was it all related?

To that stare

Or was it me

Am I

D-r-e-a-m-I-n-g-?

Then I

Immediately

Jumped up

Whew!

I was!

All because of


That stare!

      I was never afraid of the dark. My Dad said there was nothing to fear, and I believed him. Sometimes I saw a movie or heard a story that gave me a temporary relapse. I remember running until I couldn't breathe on a visit to the the old dilapidated cemetery where Alice's grave is. Back to the stare, that is scary too. But . . . here we go anyway.

      No song right now, the boys are jamming and they sound good. I might break out the harmonica.

      Somewhere in between the nocturnal ism, and just liking the dark, in my birthplace , when the clock hits 6 pm there is no more light, don't need anything but be close to home , because the boogeyman.

      That was then this is now who sleeps in the day? But Bob Marley say: And if night should turn to day . A lot of people would run a way. Check this:
