*This is the first poem that I’ve ever posted on here. I’ve always been a writer, more specifically poet and decided that I wanted to share this with you.*
As I stare into the murky waters below my feet,
I sense a pair of eyes staring at me.
For some unknown reason I don’t understand what came over me,
I looked up and saw two black eyes peering from the murky waters.
Closing my eyes, I prayed that I was imagining.
Opened my eyes and the two black eyes were a few inches away from me.
I glanced towards the river bank,
staring at the black cherry tree.
Wishing that I could escape the stare of the black eyes.
But nothing would rescue me,
For I felt something lick my leg.
Frozen still, my skin went pale.
I could feel myself shaking.
Another lick upon my leg,
At this point I don’t know what to think.
Out of nowhere, something wraps itself around my leg.
I’m pulled down by a great force.
Under the water I can’t breathe.
And there is no hope to be free.
Suffocating and water pouring down my throat.
I awake to see a person staring at me.
I look at my reflection in the water.
I now have black eyes and I am part of the murky waters.
