Everyone thinks of changing the world, few think of changing himself- Leo Tolstoy
Benaiah Jumped into a pit on a snowy day, with a lion, and killed it. 2 Samuel

Sometimes i catch a fleeting glimpse of you,
A wisp of your love here or there,
But the only time i truly sense you
Is when i feel your stare.

You follow me in dark shadows
You trace my outline with your eyes
I turn to find you but there is no one, to my own surprise

I know you stalk me in my own home,
I feel your hands around my waist
I hold a candle up to find you
But all i see in a memory of your face

And as i fell asleep one night
i felt your fingers through my hair
You eyes were looking through me
you thought that i was unaware

And as i felt your skin next to mine
I knew that we were meant to be
And i knew that i could never live without your heart beating in me.

The author's comments:
Sometimes i feel that im not truly in love with a man, but that im in love with his ghost, for how can i know who you are if you always hide things from me?
