I’ve been watching you
I’ve quite a singular view
Across the laneway by design
All things come to me in time
This prism that refracts the light
Brings me your secrets every night
I am always watching you
And there is nothing you can do

I record your days
Your habits and your little ways
Like a holograph you dance
Beside your cupboards and your plants
This prism is my data source
As through my blood such secrets course
I am always watching you
And there is nothing you can do

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. ‘There’s nothing you can do’ reminds me of the situation of not being able to escape, maybe the persona never wants to let go of a loved one. Either way a fascinating poem Helen.

    • Thanks Michael – a glimpse into a stalkers mind basically, via a kind of sci-fi/ psychic link type thing through the prism…meant to be dark and kind of hopeless and sinister. 🙂 🙂

  2. I love the part about dancing by the cupboards especially =) Happy Holidays!
