Tear Me A Shadow

Tear me a shadow
To walk in the dark
Catch me a whisper
For fear of the spark

Distract me with small talk
Fill me with tea
Stand in awkward silence
With eyes of sympathy

Two sides of knowing
Both bear the pain
Incapable of showing
Tears of heavy rain

Tell me you love me
Hold me so tight
Throw away the shadow
And make the future bright

Whatever the timescale
To know you are there
With whispers to tell me
Your here and you care
