All this time
Such a damm fool I'm been
So very afraid
Living in the shadows
In fear
Now could it really be too late?
Have I waited too long to tell him that at long last....
My phantom heart has been awaked

For so long I pretended
He had no place in my world
In my soul or in my life
Treated him cold
Shoved him away at every turn
Every chance that I got
Turning my back so that he would't see
The fear of rejection in my eyes
The horror that once revealed
The love of my phantom heart might not be returned

A ghost of a woman
A monster I hide away
Forever away
Behind this mask
I have dared to never show my face
My true self
Feared for so very long
Overcome with my own shyness
Wondering if I dare offer my phantom heart to him tonight

Hands shaking
As I compose for him
A masterpiece
Written and craved from my very soul
Shattered into the darkness of maddness I know that I
shall forever be
If his answer is a refusal
All of my dreams and hopes for us dashed
All because of me
All my fault and none of anyone else's that for far too long
I held back from him my love

My love and my phantom heart

2007 Ramona Thompson
