So long I’ve been here, waiting at your shoulder

Supporting the weight of your miseries, preventing your collapse

 

My legs have grown stiff from inaction; my heart has been choked by your hands

 

What is the reason you hold so tight, that thorny rose which bleeds you dry?

 

I cannot fathom your fondness for, this evil thing which makes you cry

 

Are you a lover of despair, addicted to her frozen lips?

Can nothing make you feel alive, if not the torment of her kiss?

 

Your corpse is breathing in my arms; your blood no doubt runs cold

Within your veins, beneath your skin, around a heart of gold

 

Faithfully, I’ve been the shadow, matching all your anxious steps

Patiently, I’ve been the wind, lifting you above the fall

 

But still, somehow, it’s not enough, to be here standing firm

If all I am, a silent rock, for which you’ll never yearn
