Something’s Off

Why do I cringe when you look at me?

I admit I don’t know you well,

But you have never given me reason to distrust you.

Yet, there is something about you.

My skin crawls even as you speak words of kindness.

I impulsively step just out of reach when you come near.

There is something under those words.

Something behind that gaze.

Something that you want from me.
