Vile Creature

You're a creature so vile.
At your mere sight
I have to choke back the bile.

I'm getting wise to your gimmick,
You're astride with every step of mine.
Everything I do you mimic;
You're nothing more then an idiot pantomime.

When my gaze catches yours
You look straight back.
It's that stare I abhor,
For the emotions it lacks.

Your stare is unflinching,
It burns to my core.
My nerves near panicking,
Filled with spectral horror.

Overwhelmed with paralyzing fear.
Reality seems so unclear.
Why are you only here
When I peer into a mirror?

    Thank you Shaz. Honestly, I wrote this one with the intention of it being on the horror side. But now, after reading it a few more times since its creation, I see how many different ways one could interpret it.

    Thank you for reading and liking it. I personally feel this one’s one the weakest of the few I’ve put on here, so read the others and see what you think of them.

    Thank you Linda. I didn't even know it was until now. I’m happy to see my poems, though a bit on the darker side, are well received enough to be on the main page and appreciated by other fellow writers.
