Quite the gut punch to the plexus…this woman is brave and courageous to understand it was never about her,but rather his need to control,dominate- and that last line,where she wrestles control back to the ‘me’

Creepy…but you captured it so well….

Hi Limor, You’ve written a very strong poem full of the emotions the hunted / stalked feel. This is a very modern problem which is not often aired. Thank you for sharing your poem with us.

Hi Limor, this was captivating from the first line all the way through. I love you deliberately did not let anything but YOU rhyme with YOU! There’s an expression of the full awareness of what narcissism is in there. That’s so well done! I also love how the subtle irregularities in the rhyme suggest that things are not as fine as they might seem. Such a great poem.
