Curiosity Burned Me

Ahead of me

I see a picture

It leers

It growls

It makes me afraid

.

The picture

It beckons to me

With candy-coated claws

Telling me

To google

Its whereabouts

Be aware

Of its thoughts

Understand

What it wants me to know

.

I did look once

I got close enough

To see

And it clawed me

I saw its commenters

And it repulsed me

.

I stand farther away now

As its claws

Beckon to me

.

A painted picture

A beast in a cage

A painted picture

A beast in a cage

Blocking

Out the noise

With my hands

With calming music

Whispering of fairytales

Where my heart is to be found

.

One look back

In my content

Shattered

As I look to see

A beast in a cage

A beast reaching out
