There is someone behind you.


Turn, turn, turn around,
there is someone behind you.

You are being followed,
watched even.

Turn, turn, turn around,
there is someone behind you.

A creepy shadow on a wall,
or maybe just imaginary afterall?…

Turn, turn, turn around,
there is someone behind you.

Hidden in the cold draft of air,
breathing on your neck,
causing even the finest hair,
to stand up and freeze.

Sending invisible ice cubes down your spine,
each one colder than the one before.

Turning the blood in your veins,
into liquified fear,
feeling like thousands of needles,
racing through your body.

Triggering earthquakes in your chest,
cracking your bones a little more,
with each eruption.

Wrapping a deadly sling around your throat,
filling your lungs with suffocation,
leaving you desperately gasping for life.

Kissing your lips with a poisonous tongue,
tasting like iron coughs.

Entering your body,
like the biting stench of gasoline.

Lighting a salty fire in your eyes,
burning its way through your nose,
into your brain.

Unleashing an inferno in your mind,
turning your thoughts into screams of hell,
begging for release.

Possessing you.

Turning your body into a candy factory,
inviting greedy parasites,
to live off your delicious sweetness.

Leaving nothing behind,
but cracked bones beneath a thick blanket of dust,
waiting patiently for the wind,
to lift it up and carry it towards the sky,
into the depths of the universe…

Turn, turn, turn around!

Come on,
I dare you!
