The Stalker

picture credit:

Disquiet surges through my being, I want to crawl out of my skin,
my hackles are raised each time it breaks, the silence not silent at all.
Something is chasing me, steadfastly hunting me,
corrupting all that I see, how I feel, and what I know,
and it leaves a gaping hole of distrust in its wake.
And he skims past the border of my consciousness
shading the light with his darkness,
and unrest snakes through my veins,
churning disorder I cannot process,
and my mind cannot rest for he’s stolen my sleep,
so please give me something to take off this edge
that is wearing my psyche down. 


  1. when you are constantly on the run, trying to stay one step ahead...
    it will def wear you out...make you want to give in....

  2. I cannot give you but my support on this.... this is heaven revisited, for every time i do so i find your great way with words...

  3. Wow, beautiful. Every time I drop by here, I'm prepared to have my mind blown!

  4. Roll over and I'll tickle your tummy!
    You need someone to make you laugh, laugh, laugh . . . . :)

  5. Only thing I have to give you is the peace which I have found--only by "letting go". And let God do the "worrying" HA!
    HE worries.
    I sleep!

  6. Thank you for capturing how I feel on an almost daily basis. You have a great way with words.

  7. Something to take the edge off....just make sure the "something" doesn't come with hidden new edges of its own! Let go and let Chocolate, i say.

  8. A piece worth to praise all thru...keep goin,gud luk.

  9. I could feel the tension in your words. I can't imagine what it must feel like to be in that situation but you descibe it so well.

  10. What works for me when I am feeling 'on the edge' (it does not happen very often as I am mostly mellow ... LOL ) is a good night's sleep and a little prayer at bedtime that my mama taught me when I was a little girl.

    You have a great way of expressing how you feel ... bravo
    I wish you peace of heart ...

  11. NO! Go the other way, don't dull the edge, hone it; razor sharp. Never know when you're going to get into a knife fight with your memories.

  12. A gaping hole of distrust... I know wat you mean. Mine is so big I wouldn't know how to patch it up.

  13. Yep, I've been there, too. Still am, actually.

  14. Just think happy thoughts and keep on going.

  15. The stalker does steal peace of mind and reason. You caught it / him/ it...

  16. Don't let someone else rent space in your head. Hope the person who is stealing your sleep goes away.
