Poem: The Stare

Across the room feel the stare the sensation laying you bare. The rising hair upon the flesh you scan the room and cannot confess you see the culprit that targets the soul. An eerie emotion takes control. A nervous blunder and flight response, a tinge of curiosity laced in fear, when would it be clear? The racing heart and searing turmoil that keeps you on your toes. Who is watching no one knows. The crowded space suffocates , the walls are closing in. In a hurry you do spin and race out the door, trying to catch your breath and suddenly nothing more.
