Teeth glisten in the dark
as I walk through the park.
I stop in my tracks in fear,
not knowing what can be near.

I stand quietly and listen,
but I only see the glisten.
Soft footsteps ring out behind me.
I’m not waiting around to see.

Then I happen to glance down,
and my face droops in a frown.
The fanged smile floats on the lily pond.
Of my reflection, I’m not so fond.

It reveals the darkness inside
that I’ve always failed to hide.
