Under the cover of darkness

They came

Silent as the night

Took it without a thought,

No care for

Any but themselves.

Breaking, trashing,


They carried on,


Once they were through.

I never saw them,

Never heard their steps

But I feel it,

Their presence

Every time I walk outside,

As I look at the recovered


I see the remnants of their


See the mess,

Smell the stench.

I can’t get the image

Out of my head.

I can’t help but wander

Who, why, where.

Can’t help but feel

Them behind me as I walk down


Can’t quite

Feel the same as before.

They only took a thing,

But they changed me

Without even knowing it.
