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.

Crazy

No it is what I have to do.

I am crazy here.

Acting crazy.

This is just no good.

I need to detox my brain of him.

Staring at the phone

willing it to ring…..

oh wait, it is 2017

waiting for a text.

Watching out the window

willing him by…..

that is right

dating is no more.

Staring at the door

willing it to open….

ah shit

I must have missed.

I am crazy,

insane with his touch

melancholy for his thoughts

desirous of his deeds.

No it is what I have to do.

I am crazy here.

Acting crazy.

This is just no good.

I need to detox my brain of him.

Saying good bye

tear after tear

ripping each head from view

a thousand pictures here.
