via Daily Prompt: Constant


A constant reminder
A nag and a badger
You just won’t let up
Why does it matter?

Give me a break
Leave me alone
Why don’t you stop?
Why don’t you go home?

I can’t take the nagging
The stalking, the blame
Enough is enough
All that remains.

Is persistent noise
Noise in my ear
Repeating, repeating
Till I’m brought to tears.

What is it you want?
What is it you see?
Why all this annoyance?
Please let me be.

Mind your own business
Get out of my way
It doesn’t concern you
Not yours to convey.

I’ll call the police for
An order of protection
If you don’t back off
And stop this obsession.
