Heart Thief

By @kiwijuice

Prompt: Write a poem with the words: breath, ice, scream and tree

It happened in a breath

In my tree he took a seat 

Not knowing he commited theft

In a single heartbeat

He smiled and said hey

Trying to break the ice

Asked if he could stay

I said, “That would be nice”

We talked for over an hour

Disregarding time

He started inching closer

His theft still on my mind

When his inching turned into a lean

I held my breath; my brain began to scream
