Suspense In The Dark

The lights go dark,

And all the sounds

Are amplified in my mind.

What was that?

Was that the floor creaking?

I jump as I hear

A car door close,

The sound drifting

through the window.

Then there is that noise again.

Is that someone in the house?

I feel my way to the desk

And find the flashlight

Tucked away in the drawer.

The sound comes closer

And I turn on the light.

What is it?

Whose there?

… no one will ever know

As I lay dying on the floor.

The Question

Based on what you said

I think I know the answer

Before I ask the question

 

Based on how you act

I think I know the answer

Before I ask the question

 

The question haunts me

It haunts me

And makes my heart break

 

Based on what I know

I think I know the answer

Before I ask the question

 

Do you still love me

Do you still love me

Did you ever love me
