Short Sentiments

By RaheemaFKM

Discovery—your guard is down; you’re standing in the line of fire and I just might have a shot
My heart is loaded, my hands are shaking; I could find the trigger if my head would stop racing
 
Analysis—you’re not yourself; you seem confused and out of sorts, like someone else is wearing your skin which doesn’t quite fit their frame
 
Impression—your weakness is becoming; I am in awe of your vulnerability
It has brought you well within reach of my grimy, outstretched hands
 
Diaphanous—my intentions are not obscured; I’ll work hard and catch you fast
There’s no telling how much longer you’ll be off your pedestal
 
Impulsion—you’re closing down; I must steal into your mind and take hostage of your thoughts
 
For if I let you shut back up, I may never make it in
