In the street,

 on the field. 

He drew nearer

I smelled deceit.

I felt it was time to desist. 


He glared at me 

And i, him. 

The look in his eyes,

 made me tremble. 

I tried to avoid his gaze.


 It was irresistible. 

He stared, 

I stared, 

He glanced,

 I glared. 


I was horrified, 

I was terrified, 

I was petrified.


 I felt like running,

 But my legs failed me. 

Screaming,

was an option.

but my cords failed me.


 I closed my eyes,

and I waited patiently.

For MR MYSTERY.

It took seconds, 

minutes and Hours,

Each day passed by.

Still I was patient with time,

like a blooming flower.


 century came over centuries 

On earth i was, feeling dead.

He glared at me, 

Every step he took,

brought him closer to me.

 

My lips that once failed me.

Let out a thunderous scream.
