Have you ever spoken to the shadows as you walk?
Because what you wanted was someone who wouldn’t talk?

You wanted someone there, but you wanted to be alone
You wanted a hand to hold but preferably without bone

You wanted to tell your side, but a response was not needed
You wanted to pour out your heart without…
