I don't mean to repeat myself, darling believe
But I feel like I'm fading, please tell me you see
Reach out and touch me, tell me if you can feel
I just need to know, need to know that I'm real
Don't make me be the one to prove
When I'm so scared I can't even move
Because all I can do it make real wounds
It gives me relief but more pain follows soon
If one scar was enough I would end it right there
But I'm afraid even that cannot end my despair
It appears that there's only one surefire way
All I need is for you to turn to me and say
I see you, I love you, I know that you're here
You're far from transparent, you're much more than clear
If you would just say that, I'd believe that it's true
Because if I was a ghost, I wouldn't have you

You are real, people around you care about you. I know it seems like your stone mother doesn't care, but she does. You need to talk to her. Tell her how you feel.
