Poetry Prompts Day 22 – OctPoWriMo 2016 – Dangerous

tenor

danger lurking behind
desperate for menace
despondent and unkind
dagger in the bus

an insecure position
anything can happen
and vulnerable to action
a wild night-out to shun

nowhere safe
night time especially
not reliable for waif
news of danger to flee

over thinking?
only being prepared
once danger coming
only I can be scared*
