You are gone
But I still hear your voice -
Whispering to me
I still see your shadow in the dark
Your spirit still roams my mind?'s corridors late at night
Dreams of you still plague my brain
Visions of you overpower my sanity.
Mentally, I feel helpless
And I long to ask you,
Why do you keep haunting me?
What is this cruel sensuality,
That has suddenly possessed me?

I await your return
