I notice you when you’re drunk, partying with friends,
I learn how your evening starts and how your evening ends.
I see you by the beach, looking great in a bikini,
Jealous of your body, safe in the knowledge you”ll never see me.
I watch you in a restaurant, I study what you eat,
Drinking in your hair cut and gorgeous heels on pedicured feet.
I’m there at your wedding, watching you become a wife.
Admiring all the pretty folk who are part of your new life.
I’m peering through a window, at the new baby you’ve brought home,
Watching daily how she changes; I like how fast she’s grown.
I’m with you on your way to work, getting hassled on the train,
Angry that delays, have made you late for work again!
I follow you and your children; Don’t they grow up quick?
I notice your youngest’s off school again, I hope she’s not too sick.
I’m there with your family at the park, see your son climb a tree;
A perfect little unit, you seem as happy as can be.
I know when you’re at home, I know when you’re away.
It doesn’t take a minute to work out where you are today.
I watch what you’re doing, glad I can’t be seen,
I know your friends and family, always knowing where you’ve been.
So ask yourself this question, am I a psycho stalking you with fervour?
Or am I just your friend on Facebook or an unknown social media observer.
We are all this person. Sounds kind of creepy though doesn’t it? Read it again with Facebook & Instagram in mind. In the meantime I’m off to review and cull a few friends on Facebook and check my privacy settings.
