Creepy Paranoia

Definition of paranoia, by www.healthline.com:

"Paranoia is a symptom in which an individual feels as if the world is "out to get" him or her. When people are paranoid, they feel as if others are always talking about them behind their backs. Paranoia causes intense feelings of distrust, and can sometimes lead to overt or covert hostility."

Example of paranoia, by Nicholas The Crusader:

"...Besides top flack Elliot Schrage, Facebook has hired at least three PR people from Google in recent months — Debbie Frost, Barry Schnitt, and Larry Yu....

Mark Zuckerberg before the Googlers came — defensive, condescending and honest
Mark Zuckerberg after getting Googled — polite, empathetic and dull"

Now seriously, we knew that Nicholas The Crusader was obsessed with proving (...) that there is an evil G-monster out there, but seeing personality changes in people just because they happen to work with ex-googlers??


The wind was cool,
I was shivering but
I was the only one who knew that
as I sat against that cold bench;
they swirled around me, and I felt
as if for a few moments, I was invisible-
I watched as they ran around,
chasing one another nerf guns
&& the rest just stood around talking,
his attention directed towards me,
time and time again I preferred staying
where I was though, alone.

My thoughts lingered in the air,
all waiting to slowly cascade down my face
but I shrugged it all off and told myself
that everything would be okay;
because all I do now is nothing but worry.
