come and get it

If you ever leave me,

take  your time

and absorb me fully.

I´ll haunt you in my dreams

I´ll hunt you to amusement

I´ll haunt you in my skin,

I´ll hunt you in my head –

Just a little bit, I will cry;

just a little bit, I will scratch

my mind raw, till you pop up,

piercing through shadows,

through the unconscious.

Ready to return to me…

As pale skeleton, as ghost,

as someone I ought to be,

but failed…

Guilt told you I stole

something of yours?

I did replace empty spots

Nothing taken, what wasn´t

stolen before!

Your place? Your face?

Come and get it!
