The Visit--By Jennifer Criss--United States

The Visit

I felt a cold chill
on that warm night
and I thought
it might have been you
paying me a visit.

I felt icy fingers
crawl down my back.
perspiration replaced
by goosebumps.
Then nothingness again.

I’m afraid, but also sad
you’ve abandoned me again.
