Laughing at the old man
Stalking me from the shadows
Coming to capture me
Pin me to his board
Like some rebellious butterfly who won't stop fluttering

Keep flying into the darkness...probing...probing
For what?
An escape hatch?
A rabbit hole?

The handsome stranger is coming for me
Looking for me
My imaginary enemy
With his invading of my space

Roaming free like this always makes him angry
The cure for loneliness
Antidote for hopelessness
The old man his-self
Couldn’t catch me if he tried

Hi Eddie...Now that old man could be
so many things...great imagery here..
I can imagine many stories behind this..
complex in a way...could be doubt, fear,
or even death....great writing...floria
