The Stalker

Do you solemnly swear tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?
                                               I do 
Did you or did you not perpetuate the victims house and watch his every move? 
                                                I did 
Did you or did you not leave the threat notes, spike the toothpaste with aconite ?
                                               I did 
You rigged the computer, blew up the tele, hacked the bed he slept on?
                                             I did 
Hid the tape recorder beneath his bed, set fire to his shed, disconnected the bell?
                                                I did 
You lit the black candle at exactly 3.33am. (he yells,)    Did you now?
                                                 I did 
You smashed his mirror thinking his spirit was trapped inside. Is this correct?
                                                  Yes 
Ms. Lameurise, unbeknownst to you the victim after being repeatedly 
victimised by you, installed cameras in his house. Chief of police received a letter the very day after he was murdered.  You were caught in the act Ms. Lameurise,  by a sofisticated 16GB memory remoteto  location camera.  The only tape missing is the one that shows 
the actual blow to his head.  The police got there too late.  What do you have to say for yourself, Ms. Lameurise? (a long silence breathed in, as the courtroom fell silent)
Aren't we the silent one the lawyer whispered in her scented neck.  What do you have any last words before we end this charade Ms. Lameurise 
(a shredded kleenex lay on her lap bone dry without a single tear.  She had no regrets and 
no conscience verve) 
                                                  I loved him.

The End.

Now that in the past I looked back; Spirit seemed to slip through crack; Have loved forever and much more, Even after he did walk out the door. He never returned to be seen again; Died and now in heaven has been; For him love and will always care, And in heaven shall see him there.
