365 Day Writing Challenge 41: What You Don’t Know

365 Day Writing Challenge

41. What You Don’t Know: Write about a secret you’ve kept from someone else or how you feel when you know someone is keeping a secret from you.

It’s like a black shadow
sat in your stomach,
long creepers
pulling you down
from your core
making you heavy
churning your stomach,
rolling you between its long long
fingers,
reaching into your throat,
stoppering your mouth,
finding your teeth and making them grind, grind against each other,
your stomach is a knot now,
you try to regain your body in this battle,
but you feel yourself sinking,
sinking
your heart is fluttering
like a bird trapped in its cage
only too aware of the cat outside,
sharpening its claws.
