The End Of October

Autumn mist 

hung in the air


close to the ground,

A sense or foreboding,

hair stands on end,

almost no sound.

A footstep 

behind you


as it hits the ground,

You want to look forward,

keep looking ahead 

but you look around.

No one

behind you


you hasten your pace,

Heart beating quickly,

You still feel you’re followed,

The steps with no face.
