Just a short one.

Cover: pastel on paper, me

My neighbours are creepy.

Especially when I’m sleepy.

They already made up their minds.

About the shadows left behind.

 

Rather than ask,

they’d prefer to judge.

In this here life.

In this here smudge.

 

I know when my lease expires,

from my habitat I will retire.

They already made up their minds.

About the shadows left behind.

 

Desire is what

I presently require

Am I a liar?

Almost sounds like you're being targeted, in that case, yes, neighbours are creepy, and invasive.

Those are the kinds of neighbors I wouldn't want living next door to me. Good poem! And another eye-catching piece of art. :)

Yeah terrible neighbors exist. It sucks when you have to be the one next to them. They target you and harass and you're just forced to deal.
