Obsession!

Always had the obsession he was being followed

even before the digital generation

that familiar figure whom he had seen before

not certain this was his imagination

a click on the phone as if somebody listening

an uncomfortable sensation inside

even in his own home that object had moved

thought must be getting confused!

 

Atheist in his beliefs so no angel was by his side

yet felt the tingle of uncertainty

as if eyes were peering at him twenty four seven

over a couple of years it was constant

technology had begun to advance at a brisk rate

intrusion of privacy a big debate!

 

Became bedeviled that some agency was listening

checking his data did not feel free

being a conspiracy theorist was often outspoken

many colleagues had been shut down

just told the truth of what he saw in this society

but this simply increased his anxiety!

 

Filled with doubt about everything around him

sat one night staring very attentively

at his laptop screen when an image appeared

several days later he was discovered

by his worried girlfriend absolutely stone dead

face hideously distorted and crushed head!

 

What really had been watching and ended his life?

Never an investigation to ease pain or strife!

Hidden!

Not a believer sat enthralled listening to the woman

whom had paid thirty pound

to see what the future could possibly be for her

declaring she was a medium

claiming to get messages from spirits of the dead

as yet hard to believe what she said!

 

Skeptically minded listened to the information told

nothing of substance spoken

until details only she could have known emerged

a sense of wonder filled her mind

indicating a stance performed in front of mum

words spoken made her numb!

 

Hidden moments only she had saved into a memory

with doubts of an afterlife

faltering in that long believed certainty it did not exist

either she was a mind reader

or messages were really from those of the departed

to us a realm still uncharted!

 

Leaving wanting to accept spirits were fact and existed

but somehow this hope resisted

to many in society they know for certain that’s its true

but equally millions do not hold this view

that angels and demons battle for our immortal souls

or reincarnate coming back taking on new roles!

 

There is so much still in the category of the unknown

she left more confused and fearful

shaken by what the fortune-teller knew of her life

that nobody could have found out

yet comforted that death maybe only an illusion

but had still not been proven!

 

Could the departed haunt us from another plain

still really sounded insane!

 

For any answers would have to wait for her end date!
