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!
