The Thief

Hiding under the bed

Is a piece of you

I stole it while you were sleeping

Dreaming of far away places

Viewed by the moonlight

Through the open window

You told me you were leaving

To enjoy exotic labyrinths

I knew you were polymorphic

That’s why I chose you

Now my piece of you

Will stay with me forever

As a part

Of my collective kaleidoscope

    Hi Barb,
    Like this one. If it wasn’t for the line ‘You told me you were leaving’ I would think it was creepy (which is good – I like it!). However that line suggests the two know each other?

    You are good at this 🙂
