Silent Stalker

By Soulfire

Quietly up to your room he crept
Watching you as you slept
You think you are safe and secure at home
But what you don't realize is that you're not alone sleep

He moves in and touches your face
Just as you are dreaming of your lovers embrace
Your lips part and your body gently shakes
Now is his chance, he can no longer wait your eyes

Suddenly you awake to the feeling of a stare
You sit-up and look but no one is there
You smell the slightest sent of cologne
You turn on the light, but you are all alone
All the while, never knowing that at the end of your bed
Lies a silent stalker with nothing said
So back into slumber you slowly descend
..... never to wake again

    I love the flow and honestly will say that this is a perfect read. You incorporated manydifferent emotions in this. I honestly didn't know what to expect at the end because you shifted back-and-forth contemplation. Great piece. Scholar

    ...seriously, though, it's got one of the many things I love about these types of writes...the suspense of someone being sought after, tracked down, watched unknowingly, until that pivotal confrontation people fear will alway happen... Scholar

    ...on top of that, you showed a good command of rhyme, and I always respect that...I still love the wonderful gory bits detailing the confrontation, but this alone does suffice... Scholar
