In the room above the house
Lives a small, lonely creature,
Not bigger than a grey mouse
But with no common feature;
It exists in the shadows
Of us long-legged human,
Navigating our condos
Like an experienced crewman.
It steals sweets to eat away
And sometimes socks for its lair,
Though only one from the pair
Leaving the other half stray.
Longing, searching for its kind
It roams in the dark of night,
Bathing sometimes in starlight,
To heal its old, weary mind,
Protecting our children’s dreams
And fighting away nightmares
With golden sand and moonbeams,
Invisible hero, there.
Not my best achievement but not so bad either. Rather satisfied of this one even if it somehow feels unfinished for some reason…
Also, yes, ‘condos’. I’m sorry…
