I hide in plain sight.

I creep in the darkness, unseen,

and in day light, stand out in the open,


and draw no attention to myself.


But you did not see me

bring a green worn out sleeping bag

into the premises.

A battery operated reading light,

two pillows, a water bottle,

and all the unsent letters I’ve written

for you.


I watch you unnoticed.

You can barely hear my gasp

when you walk a few inches past me.

At night, I take residence

in the comforts of your territory.


This covert violation

is the only transgression I will commit.

It goes no further than this.

I’m not capable of any more.


All I am

is a passive vagrant

in your heart.
