Phantom Stalker - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

i see you in every corner of my eyes
i look around and there you are among the crowd
walking by the distant
among faceless souls
and there you are again reading by the bookstore

i sip a cup of coffee i see
a reflection of your face through the waves
i look up and you're gone

i look outside the window
by the office, by my home
i see you walking, running and riding a bike
but i stare and its not

your shadow creeping my every move
i feel a slight swish
i thought it was you beside me
oh, how i wish!

and i travel among city streets
looking, searching
pair of grey eyes i gleam
and i saw them often as i dream

i cant seem to find you around
so i looked up
and i saw you once more
i thouht, you, i finally found.

a clear light hiding behind
puffs of distant smiles
a thousand kisses you shower me
under millions of droplets of the sea.
