I need you like I need silence,
But tonight I can't have either.
Harsh words of lovers creep through this house.
Love is fake.
I know it is.
I'm too smart to believe in it but I pretend to.
And that's enough sometimes.
I touch your tear glazed face,
but its only just a dream.
I feel you creep along my skin
but you were never close.
A fleeting shadow on my mind,
You prey upon my thoughts as they flow.
I taste you on my tongue.
I hear your voice echo off the corners of the room,
as the spider webs are spun.
The kiss on my cheek was from my pillow,
Cause you are just a dream.
A ghost it seems I can not let you be.
Your an itching in my soul,
And as you leave,
I'll beg you not to go.
