I stalk you,
Watch you,
Follow you.

Where ever you go,
I’m right behind you.
You can feel my eerie presence,
Feel my eyes burrowing into your back.

You’re terrified of me,
Though you cannot see me,
Silently stalking you.

I’m everywhere,
You can’t escape me.
I cloak you like a dream,
I will always surround you.
You can’t escape me.

You run,
You hide,
I still find you.

I will always find you.
I am driven to find you
Hiding.

You shake when I’m near,
You scream when I’m around you.
You start to sprint when I’m coming,
But you can’t escape me.
Even you know that.

I stalk you,
Watch you,
Follow you.

ok that was really scary but i think your outlook on such an issue is very clever and the poem itself was very strong and bold it enters an issue in which speculation is more ill advised so it was dare i say interesting
