The Confession

How do I start?

What can I say?

Anything just to make you stay

To stay with me

Below the ground

In this place you'll never be found.

A shadow am I,

A shadow of death –

A single word whispered, a sigh, a breath.

I seem a ghost,

Yet I'm right here –

I only wish to love you, dear,

And yet, from me

You run away.

My dear Christine… please, won't you stay?
