Stealthy and luxurious.
The original super spy.
It creeps in unnoticed until it is everywhere,
quick sand of the air.
You see something,
an arm reaching out to take you within.
But it is only a tree branch.
A lonely blanket heavy with chill.
It feels deceivingly safe.
Right until CRASH!
Then it is gone.
No trace left behind.
Only the memory of a lover’s breath on the back of your neck.
About the Author: Jeanette McGurk
Jeanette McGurk is a Graphic Designer who entered the world of writing through advertising. She discovered writing a lot of truth with a little fluff is a lot more fun than the other way round. Now that she is no longer spending time making air conditioners, tile floors, IT and Botox sound sexy, she writes about the unglamorous yet wonderful moments of life for people like herself; in other words, anyone looking for interesting ways to put off cleaning and doing laundry.
She is a curmudgeon and doesn’t Twit or Instagram. She has heard the blog is dead but since she has finally figured out how to do it, that is the museum where you can locate her writings. http://jmcpb.blogspot.com/.
