TRANSCRIPTION:

“I’m disappointed,
You didn’t stick to our deal,
A detective appointed,
This time I’ll make you feel,

You’ve got to understand,
It’s hard for me too,
This was never planned,

My devotion to you,

I can’t get you out of my head,
As you just tease me,
You’re better of dead,
I’ll make it easy,

I got ammo, I’ve got a gun,
I know where you live,
There’s nowhere to run,

It’ll be quick,
Maybe not painless,
Just a click,
Shiny and stainless,

They might cry,
As they watch you die,

But it’s for the best,
The ultimate test,
Your love for me,
That you don’t know of yet,
How you belong to me,
As the carpet stains red,

You’ll perish before the eyes of your fans,
By my loving, caring hands.

– Your Stalker.”

I Am The Tree

Over at Writing Upside Down, a website owned and run by fellow author Danielle Tauscher, there’s a nifty little writing challenge – based on one picture she asked a range of authors – including Bobby – to write a short story that ranged anywhere from one-hundred to one-thousand words.

Bobby chose to write a small piece of poetry instead of his usual (scary) stories – curious yet? Go over to Writing Upside Down and check it out! We sure hope you’ll leave a comment here and there!
