Whispers, against my skin as the wind, kisses me softly.
Close your eyes, you are safe,
And I will protect you.
One single tear falls from my eyes,
I shiver from the cold wetness on my cheeks.
Take me away, even for just one second.
Whispers of soft kindness and secure embrace,
I listen like a child,
I do as I command,
Hate and anger I feel, but I don’t need to be saved from the poison.
Whispers of love,
Let go and set yourself free.
But I can’t do what you say, I am not made that way.
I whisper and say,
You had me for a second,
But I can’t do what you say.
I am the darkness,
And there I will find my way.
So tonight, I will whisper that you must do what I say,
Follow me because I will not follow.
