338 – Ghost tears

I’m sorry, my love,
I’m so sorry.

I was born to be
A single person,
And I died and I hurt you
And I killed your feelings.

I’m sorry, my love,
I’m so sorry.

I wanted to stay
But I don’t know what to do.
I just keep running into my life
And I don’t know what to say.

I’m sorry, my love,
I’m so sorry.

Life wasn’t a cage
But I think that’s what I was.
I think that’s what I thought
I had to become.

I’m sorry, my love,
I’m so sorry.

You can’t hear my voice
Or the sound of your feelings.
You can’t feel your pain.
But I can.

I’m sorry, my love,
I’m so sorry.

I can’t cut you free
So I just stay beside you,
And cry by your bed
The tears you never did.

I’m sorry, my love,
I’m so sorry.

I thought death
Would bring peace,
But I still remember.

You brought me back
From your nightmares
And promised to never let go.

I was your cage
In life,
You are my cage
In death.
