I am just a pale ghost Remnants of a broken heart, a friendless stain of existence, no longer able to feel And I broke my heart over you You who I cannot seem to quantify, with dark eyes open. I am the ghost, filled with dreamless sleep and hours of torment, oscillating between calling you closer and asking you to leave. I know I have no place here, That uninvited visitor who trails behind you at a short distance, always silent. I stop breathing when you walk by and sigh heavily as you leave I am a ghost yet I am the one who is afraid I fear you will suddenly know and back away from me in disgust I fear that this dark secret will be found and the delicate fabric will unravel So much fear and anxiety and all the color drains from the world. Grey, translucent and regretful I am your sorrowful ghost I know I have no place here with you
