Napowrimo Day Twenty-six: Watching

I am watching
I am the monster stalking you
You don't see
For so long
I have waited to be here
I am watching
Tear you apart
I am the monster stalking you
See me now
All the deaths
Courtesy of me and still
You don't  see.

Today we are writing persona poems. This is from the point of view of the monster that was stalking the woman in a poem I wrote for day three or four. I'm  doing all of this from my blogger app on my new phone, so I may come edit a little later.
A little later:
The companion poem for this one is called Night Terrors and it is from Day Three. Both of these also reference my NaNoWriMo novel that I began in November and am working on a little during Camp NaNo this month.  (I still have 2000 words to write over the next three days.) I do have a small snippet from that story called Annie Is Having A Bad Day.
The poem above was fun. My friend and I were discussing cascade poems late the other night, and I thought, wouldn't it be cool  to write a cascade using Collom Lunes? I completely neglected to consider that the five word middle line would not work as the last line of the third stanza. So, I made it the second, et voila! A Collom Cascade.
