Paranoia

Suspicion etches a word in my mind

Just sitting, waiting, nagging at my brain

No questions asked in fear of what I'll find

The answer revealed could drive me insane

It's watching in the shadows taunting me

I can't look away as it holds my stare

But I can't make out what I really see

Eyes making shapes and figures that aren't there

Paranoia adds to eerie silence

Time slowing down adrenaline kicks in

The tension rises, heightening suspense

Is it real or does it come from within

A figment of my imagination

To think I made up this whole creation
