Stop following me!

Avatar Author: Kat Peters I believe that you should have no fear when it comes to writing. Just do it!!! Read Bio

You disgust me, yet I want to love you. I see your pain, and yet I know you are the cause of it all. Please don’t give me that look. Just stop!

Why? Why do you do this to me? Just when I think it is OK, I see your face. You stare at me like I did something wrong. I know it is my fault, but please I can’t take it anymore. Don’t keep doing this.

For one day, just one day, couldn’t you be somewhere else? You have to be here, in the same place everyday. When I am driving I see you in my rear view mirror, you follow me everywhere. When I am walking down the street and glance at a store front window, I see you there in the reflection, still following me. Why won’t you leave me alone?

If I could find one place where you won’t be, I would go there and stay. I keep hoping that a place like that exists, I just pray. Sometimes I close my eyes and feel you have gone away, only to open them and realize I have been betrayed.

    I like the poetry in the last paragraph. It doesn’t feel forced and adds to the emotion of the story.

    I love this sequel. It takes the story into an almost schizophrenic direction, as though the enemy is the person’s own reflected self. Even so, it remains open that the antagonist could be an individual entity.

    Realistic, emotionally driven questions, and the poetic ending are all top notch.

    I feel like this is a POV switch, this is the one being watched, which threw me off for a sec. It does have a schizo feel. I completely agree with Jae.

    Nice sequel, sort of talking back to the one before, all anger and resentment. Really starts to paint it towards the voice being a conscience or some other part of self.

No, I’m not your greatest fear, but I am in all the places you least want me to be. Yep. I’m there. And there. And those places. ...
