Am I Missing Something?

  • by

Pointed at me
Motionless, wordless, menace

I eye you
As you lay upon my desk
A vision of something to come?
A sign I should heed?
Am I missing something?

My head buzzes
A momentary vision
Taking the handle
Ramming the blades firmly into my chest
Why? Why would I do that?
Because I could?
Am I missing something?

Clutching the handle
Pointing away the blade
Find a drawer
Hide the temptation
Because I should
In case I'm missing something

Am I missing something?
