A poem written for the WDC Media Prompt, October 8, 2020.

I'm sure you know the feeling;
that someone else is there
hiding in the shadows
or creeping up a stair.
Faces in the mirror,
although I am alone,
a very average person
in a very average home.
Someone is always watching,
sending prickles down my spine
and I don't mean occasionally,
it happens all the time.
Is someone playing tricks,
or am I losing all my grip?
I need to keep from shadows
just in case I go and trip.
Maybe it's paranoia
but there's no privacy for me
for I'm seeing people looking
and they are driving me crazy.
