 I’ve been here for a while.
For as long as you can remember, anyway.
Sometimes I say your name as you’re falling asleep,
Or whisper urgently in your ear.
Remember that time that I screamed?
Setting panic through you,
and setting your heart racing?

That was fun.

You’re wondering who I am.
That’s only natural.
Of course, you already know.

I’m you.
I’m the real you.
I’m the mind that existed here
Before you stole my body,
Before you forgot about being a parasite.

I’m the child
Who looked the wrong way,
Asked the wrong questions,
Says the wrong thing.
But I’m not so little anymore.

You may have forgotten me,
But I’m still here.

I’ve always been here.
