Song: The Stalker - Poem by David SmithWhite

Each and every moment of each and every day,
I became obsessed with her in every single way.
I followed her home from school,
my diary tells it all:
a crazy man, and a bloody fool.
Riding for a fall.

Each and every minute of each and every hour,
the pressed leaves of her sheltered life,
made her the perfect flower.
I watched her from a distance,
her beauty to admire.
She became my fantasy,
and an object of desire.

Each and every season of each and every year,
my world was void of reason.
I lived in black despair.
Dangerous thoughts and passions,
ruled a desperate soul.
Lust and blind ambition,
rent my self-control.

Each and every second of my waking life,
I studied how to beckon;
to take her as a wife.
Transfix her with a hypnotic gaze,
my steely eyes like ice.
Entrap her in a psychic maze,
or some other charmed device.

Each and every moment of each and every day,
I was the fierce tiger that stalks a craven prey.
Each and every minute of each and every hour,
I strived to impress her with my potency and power.
Each and every season of each and every year,
I roll the memory around my mind:
her eyes afire with fear.

Each and every instance of my allotted time,
to contemplate her innocence,
recalls a heinous crime.
I count out my life in short steps now.
I pace a tiny cell.
I sink beneath the lowest depths,
to reach my special hell.

    Nicely creepy. Liked the repeated 'each and every'. I've been wanting to do some dark poems for Halloween. You've inspired me to finish one up today. Thanks! Chuck (Report) Reply
