I’m Hiding

I ran away from all the pain, anger, and hatred I felt for not being able to speak my mind and found myself hiding in a dark cave, drenched in both rain and tears just under the overpass, hidden beneath a hill.

Before I knew it I had fallen asleep, shivering and aching from the ground below.

Upon waking I realized I was no longer human, or at least, I was not as big as a human.

My clothes piled around me in heaps it seemed.

Someone is yelling my name, someone who’s voice is yearned for but. . not welcome.

Footsteps approach and worry in their voice screams out with each word.

“I’m here! I’m here!” I yell uncontrollably. I don’t want to see you, but what other choice do I have?

Taken aback by my size, you crept up to me.

I can see tears in your eyes and your whole body is trembling in. . sadness? Fear?

Picking me up carefully, you slide me into your pocket, letting the warmth of your coat embrace me.

“I’m sorry my wish came true.”
