Followed

I am followed by an entity
who looks exactly like me,
but she chooses to grin at my miseries
while I choose to look away.
She has my skin type but somehow
mine looks faltered and cracked
while hers runs smoothly like a river
never running dry. At night
when I twist and turn on my bed
unable to fall asleep,
cursing every single nerve in my brain,
she sings me an ominous song
and peacefully watches me
writhe on the creases of my bedsheet.
