Pretend You're Here

Cold heart,
Lonely room.
I hear the screaming
Far too soon.
Needing someone to hold me tight,
I can't get through this lightless night
Without you.

A ghost whispers
Of the past.
Answering questions
I never asked.
Things that chase me, things I fear
Only you can stop these tears.
Only you.

No eyes to see,
No ear to tell,
Nobody to hold
No light in hell.
Then there was you,
The only person who
Would hear.

Where have you gone
At this late hour?
To home, to friends?
To let me cower?
I need you now, but you are there,
So I'll lie down and pretend you're here
With me.
