Going To Keep You Haunted

Did you think I was just going to let you go?
Freeing you to believe,
My grieving you have achieved?

Did you...
Think that?

You underestimated me,
And my capable abilities.
I am more than flesh and bone,
My love.
And in your mind...
I'm not about to leave!

Did you...
Think that?

Did you think my show of respect for you,
Was a sign of weakness?
And without you about...
I would mope around and pout?
Be 'blue' without you?

Did you...
Think that?

Did you think I would throw trantrums,
Like a child...
With a frown on my mouth?

Did you...
Think that?

I am more than flesh and bone,
My love.
And in your mind...
I am not about to leave!

In the quietness of your dreams...
That shadow appearing to creep silently,
To hear you gasp with muffled screams!
Will be me.
Smiling.

Rush to turn on the light.
I will not be there to see!

Resting in a peaceful sleep...
Freed of me.
Is no longer for you,
Meant to be!

I am going to keep you haunted.
