The Ghost..You Require

The silence you need
and me with a mouth,
a mouth full of words,
the absence, the stunning absence
you wrap yourself in
steals the shadow that follows me
I cannot be for you,
the ghost you require.

I cannot swallow the words
filling my mouth
I cannot fade
into the silence of absence
You need a ghost
I cannot become

The ghost you require
and the quiet inside
the words never spoken
and the frozen sleep
of a night spent alone

I cannot be,
for you
the ghost you require
