A Stalker's Love Poem

They say I’m crazy, but I can’t forget how she smiled at me when our eyes first met. To see her, to hear her - each day I’d pray! What do they know of true love anyway? A few times we went out, and we nearly kissed. But things took a wrong turn. What had I missed? I’m sure her friends said to keep me at bay. What do they know of true love anyway? They called me possessive; then even she got an order from court to restrain me for treasuring her!! Here’s all I can say: What do they know of true love anyway? They got me for murder; I love that girl still. I could not have her, so no one else will. I sit writing love poems, rotting away. . . What do they know of true love anyway? 11/12/17 for the Stalker Contest of Silent One

WoW! Andrea, I agree with Robert, you nailed it. It was so well written. I enjoyed the build up from start to finish. The repeated line of " What do they know of true love anyway" made it more impactful. He was a stalker/ murderer and now he paying for it. Is this contest over? It can't be because this a winner. Excellent job- Alexis

You nailed it my friend. Stalkers are dangerous and far too oft intend harm. And yes some do actually murder. This piece flows so well, rhymes are excellent and its message and reality both are on target. Truly an exceptional piece. IMHO A fav....

Nice one, Andrea! You can pick up the hints of creepiness initially, which soon descends into full-blown psychotic behaviour. Good luck in the contest. Regards, John.

I find it interesting that you wrote this from a male perspective. If I remember correctly, it was not a requirement, but a role that sat best with your muse. Nothing wrong with that, its just interesting. My muse with this theme; she drew a blank. This is clever; represents HIS sick rationalizations and literally how it changed his world. An original.

So you put your persona as male in this work. And it works! You might want to go to Demon Demon Ghost Funk Orchestra to hear how my nephew set my poem to music. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
