Loving A Ghost

"Loving A Ghost"

I wake from a late night to a soft noise in my home.
The last drop from the faucets stops as I realize I'm alone.
The million lights are off, and I'm afraid of the dark.
I try so hard to turn them on but they've been broken from the start.
A shadow walks in front of me, it tells me where to go.
I turn around to see who follows and see a shadow on the floor.
My heart is pounding and the adrenaline has found me.
Why does it feel like I'm alone but there's a set of eyes around me.
I try to look for comfort when I need it at the most,
but there's a price you have to pay when you are living with a ghost.

When you're in love with a ghost.
