Dangerous Oasis

Prompt Day #342: Describe a scarecrow from a crow’s point-of-view.


Dangerous Oasis


I see you there

Standing in the middle of

Everything I desire.

Waiting for me,

Beckoning me in that

Dangerously seductive way of yours

That says

“Look at me, I will not

Hurt you

I am an island

Of safety

In a sea of

Gluttony and Lust.

My arms spread wide

Waiting to catch you

Waiting to end you.”

I almost believe

Almost allow myself

To dive into your arms

But then I see you

For what you really are

A warning
