Stranger, I see you watching me,
Watching me in the dark, watching me in the light,
Your eyes follow and haunt me,
I twist and turn, unable to escape, whether left or right.
Stranger, leave me alone, please,
I do not need to see your cruelties,
I do not need to see the truth,
I want your harassment to cease.
Stranger, why are you everywhere?
Reflecting all my inadequacies,
Making my private life public,
Revealing what others see.
Stranger, why do you remain near,
And treat me with disdain?
I have a sickening feeling,
I know this stranger’s name.
Stranger, each day you grow stranger still,
There is no way I can stall,
I am a stranger to myself,
Trapped in the mirror on the wall.
