Part of a series or song cycle:
Because I will not follow you
You follow me.
I hear your pads from close and near,
Seeking hide in needled forests
Into which no light may pierce
And in blue under-water caves
You still blind-stalk this pitiful prey.
Crouching in the runnels of your cool grey brain,
Even here you find me.
Kill me, but do not pity me.
Whether infinite negation or starry eternity
I do not see you.
