Rouse my flickering embers

That the fire may keep burning


Chase out my dampened spirits

Compose for me a new melody


Box up my melancholy

Help me tune out the sad noises


That you may invade my dreams

When I close my eyes


That when I hear the sounds of your footsteps

My body is paralyzed

By a tingling.


You who lingers behind the door,

Unsure how, to seize abandoned grounds

I dare say you will be brave.
