ShapeShifter

You shift so effortlessly

from human to reptilian.

When I first met you,

my heart pounded.

Your figure rocked so gently,

like a model, you walked,

smoothly through the room,

taking blood and swabbing cheeks.

I’ll admit your touch was calming…

 

But then you shifted back to what you are…

Your brown skin, scaled up like emeralds.

Your nails curled like claws.

Your pupils slit like cat’s.

You tongue…

 

I’d be lying if I said I hated it,

But knowing you as something else,

changing like you did,

set me on edge…

Made me fearful for my life.

 

Reality failed me, and my mind couldn’t recover…

And now you’re gone… I’ll never have you back.
