Driving in the dusky forests,
And accompanied by Dark Boulevard,
Suddenly got Intruded by an unexpected visitor,
All Lost & Aloof!
Right there! Clinging to the slippery windows,
A reptile! A spotted Goof!!
Casting enlarged shadows on the interiors,
Watching it inhale and exhale,
Gives cold creeps on my exteriors,
Makes me wanna send it on exile!!
And watch it stare outside,
Looking at it move hastily,
And grabbing its hold onto the inside,
Web like legs slipping,
Perplexed, a gape so gripping,
Does it crave food?
Does it want to be freed?
Those glittering eyes, striking with fear,
Drawing boundaries and warnings,
For trespassers to come nowhere near,
Attacks guided by instincts and actions,
I Stood there horrified,
Shivering to act,
With brain and hands tied,
& frozen to react….
Finally it dawned upon me,
Mirroring our fears,
I am no different than the goof,
Enclosed and protecting myself from dangers,
All Lost and aloof..
