Shadowed Love

***Please note that this poem deals with Stalking/Death which may be a trigger. Please read with caution.****
Tick tock
do you hear the clock?
I am coming for you.
Here
now
forever more.
Hide.
Run.
I will always find you hun.
Together
we will be one
as the gods have ordained
I read it in the bible
come to me
let us play one on one.
Upon the altar you lay
beautiful girl
draped in white
a bride of the night
Do not cry
shed no tears
I promise dear
the knives won’t hurt.
Draw
pierce
your screams
dulcet tones in my ears
trembling threads
blood red
your eyes become vacant.
Once upon a time
what I felt was called limerence
today
they will call it stalking
undesired attention
unwanted attraction.
Alas my love
everything could have been alright
if only you had cared.

    1. Thank you. When I first read word and looked up definition I was stumped and then it hit…and my fingers flew across the keyboard. I am not sure who I was channeling this morning. 🤓💜
