Turn Your Back - Poem by Lili Freebird

I swallow loudly,
You sniff in the scent of me,
Am I as you like?
I have put mascara on today just for you,
And I done my hair just for you,
And I have put on this short dress and high heels just for you,
Because I knew,
That just like every other day you would walk behind me,
Without saying a word.
Are you still there, my invisible?

I can hear you whispering,
What has it come down to?
What has this become?
Was there ever anything?

Footsteps echoe in the hall,
You're here?
Of course you are.

Just like any other day,
Even though I would wish something would change,
I wish I had enough courage to introduce myself,
Even though you proably already know my name,
You do follow me all day, every day, right?
I wish I could speak up,
And tell you how I feel about my stalker.

It makes me feel safe somehow,
In the most unsafest ways.

You follow me to school and back home and I don't say a word.
I can't make out your features.
Your standing in the shadows,
Dark and dull.
Theres a hoodie covering your face.

Stained bright red,
Inc as black as night,
Spreading like a virus inside my computer,
Allowing you to keep track of my every move,
You read my emails and watch me through the cameralens.
As fast as gossip in school.

Close your eyes why don't you?
Lets just go back.
Lets just go back, ok?
