My sister and I

see the tall man out our window

He's captivating

he holds you in his gaze

and his sweet words and promises

burn like acid

his outstretched arms

both comforting and frightening

clad in stark black

and those smiles are frequent

a catlike grin

but he is jealous of us

and he wants to keep us

and we can't tell our parents

and my sister trusts him

but she doesn't hear him

not really

his words are nice,
but I know he's lying

he wants to take us away

he wants to keep us to himself

no mommy,

no daddy

just him

I'm scared

I don't want him to take me away

sis can go herself

I'll stay here

maybe he won't be so jealous

if he has her...
