Behind The Shadow

his lurid eyes are staring at me,
he hides behind me, nowhere to be seen
once I stop walking
I can feel him standing
I can catch the glimpse of his shadow
I can feel him breathing on me

but when I turn my head and look behind me
he is not there anymore, he flees away
I try to stop him from leaving but
how can I hinder a shadow that
I cannot even touch at all?

he is like a ghost, standing and watching me
every time when I am not aware of his being
I feel his lurid eyes on me, again
now I know, he haunts me for so long
a madness I must live with everyday
for eternity
