Last night I woke alone and heard

A whisper in my ears

Murmured tales to me about my past

And mocked about my fears


Jeered about the things I'd done

Things I'd had yet to do

Sneered at all my memories

Things I have yet to rue


Taunted me and haunted me

Through the entire night

It's vanished now without a trace

It left at morning light


Last night I woke alone and though

The voice has disappeared,

It will be back forevermore…

It's worse than I had feared.
