Creep - Poem by Wanda Swim Strunk

You asked me if I heard what you just said
Yes, it was something about you leaving
And all the things outside our bed.

I am going down my father’s path
Blind to all I should see
You sound like my mother’s wrath
I am a creep and I’ve crept in between you and me.

Yeah I heard what you alleged
Memorized from the million times said before
It all swims around in my head
Threatened but you haven’t gone out the door.

What motivates me to do better
The woman I have the potential to be
Never a winner always a quitter
I am a creep and I’ve crept in between you and me.

I am the in betweener
The never be-er
Under achiever

Yeah I heard what you alleged
Memorized from the million times said before
It swims around my head
Still threatening but not out the door.
