daily writing prompt – “climbing”

for a while

i never saw you

i never heard you

nor felt you climbing

from the base of my spine

to the nape of my neck


and then one day

there you were

nestled in my nervous system

puppeteering my heartstrings

piloting my thoughts


a captain at the helm

who always goes down with the ship
