I'm the dust on the things of your past,

The long forgotten clip for the hair you can't tame.

I am the doll lying there, with the broken legs,

And that person that you can no longer name.

I am that secret you never could share,

That's been buried so deep, you no longer care.

I am the person who still holds a grudge, for reasons you never knew.

I am the ice built up in your heart...and the reason why it never grew.

You forever keep yourself in the dark, keeping your fears hidden.

But when you're all alone in the world, I will come to you, unbidden.

I am despair.
