Monsters Lurking

Monsters lurking
in shadows marking
points on a map
that was meant
never to be explored.

Eyes quietly fluttering open
recognizing the everyday
moments that are best kept
at arms-length
and then allowed the circumstance
to close ranks.

To be preyed upon
is the ultimate betrayal.
To have been preyed upon
the ultimate martyrdom.

What we haven’t given
to be understood as something more
to impart various affectations
of a soul
yearning to release.
