Following in silence!


I feel it hidden just out of sight
My heart it beats and starts to excite
Never seen, it makes not a sound
But behind me i feel, its presence around
I slip into doorways, hiding in hope
A hope of a glimpse, of grabbing its throat
What does it look like, who could it be
I know its there, i know it knows me
The harder i try, the more it evades
It must be aware, my mind it invades
How does it know when i'm going to hide
It has a fore knowlege, a window into my mind
I let it follow, let it think i've relaxed
Then after a while, I turn in my tracks
Still its invisible, not so much as a hint
Of anything there, i start to think
What if its me, just my mind playing tricks 
The doubt starts spreading, now its transfixed 
I siphon it off and ignore my mind
It isn't real, theres nothing behind
Ignore it once, ignore it again
Third time lucky my mind starts to bend
Perception changes, I learn to ignore
The sense of danger, being followed no more
Then one night, just by happenstance
I decide to try, give it one last chance
Nip into a doorway, make not a peep
I see a shadow, pass by in a sweep
I sneek out behind, and come face to face
With whats been behind, sat in my wake
A projection of me, all that i am
Not a reflecion but still the same man
I look into the eyes, of the beast i do see
Those very same eyes, looking right back at me
My heart starts to sink, at last do i see
This is how, as myself...this is how i see me!
