Peek-a-Boo

A black and white doodle of a lizard

I crawl and tiptoe as I watch you weep,

you lie on your couch with a wound so deep.

I inch closer to pacify your grief,

seeing me, you screeched a ghastly shrill that made me freak.

Worriedly I ran up towards the roof,

you came with a pillow and hushed me with a poof.

Drained with constant efforts, you sit back and hurl a grin,

swiftly I hide in my hole wondering was my concern actually a sin?

    Love your lizard. Sad-bittersweet poem, but it’s an excellent description of an issue in relations, and a vivid “slice-of-life” moment relayed. So, it’s always hard to think that people would construe identifying with a good poem as “liking” even harsh or hard-to-hear subjects. But, yeah, the poem is excellent, especially because of that. Great on both visuals and subject “matter”. Symbolism, with the lizard, too, can be added in for a different dimension. I like it all. Great going!
