your words
seem to follow me
day in
and day out
spoken in the shadows
from an unknown voice
with feeling
so powerful
and strong
it's a wonder
they were spoken at all
they seem to be so true
and yet so far away
unreachable
but my soul believes
a shadow in my life
just following
awaiting the day
when they will come out
full force
screaming in my mind
awaiting your return
and the hope of a brighter day
the feelings
earnest in the words
to be uttered once more.
