Anticipation

Anticipation

A Poem by Glenna.
"

I feel significantly creepy now.

"

I search for you

because I know you're hiding.

You close your eyes

Because you know I'm watching.

Try and escape the rope I've tied.

I highly doubt you can.

I've knotted it with compliments and 

guilty thoughts-

The kind that drill into memories 

and fill the air with insomnia.

Don't be frustrated, babe.

You did this to yourself.

Accept it; embrace it.

Things are working out better than

expected.

It's okay, honey.

I can wait.

Just stop squirming.

STOP. SQUIRMING.

You've made your mess a while ago.

And finally, finally, your mess has made me.

Don't worry about it, dear one.

It won't be much longer...

Tonight's gonna be a good night.

It seems like you actually entered into the head of a psychotic person. Really well written, makes my mood change very quickly from a little bit freaked out, to kind of freaked out, to feeling safe, then definitely freaked out lol

Well Glenna. You're right when you mention 'creepy'. BUT CREEPY IN A GOOD WAY! (If that's possible...)
This was such an intriguing and captivating piece! The rhythm of your poem was totally spot on, and I thought that your use of punctuation was really effective in capturing this natural flow. I loved how your poem started off so simplistic, and calm (in a creepy way of course...), and then increased in intensity and towards the end, became the whole outburst of a total madwoman! This was amazing. :D

Beautiful rhythm. Almost conversational. Beautiful flow. It's just beautiful.

This made me giggle like mad. I don't know if that's a good thing.

"I've knotted it with compliments and guilty thoughts-"

Love that line.

I wish I could tear this apart, but it's too good. Your flow and rhythm are perfect, your emotions are out there, and the whole thing is so vividly intense. Maybe it's because I'm creepy, but I loved this.
