I tried to -
I wanted to be a better man. The kind of man who wouldn't. Not her. Never her. I thought it would be easy. Bring it back, the man, inside me. Grow a conscience. But -
It's in me all the time. The spark. I can feel it burn against my ribs. It sizzles every time I move, and... Yes. The pain. I never thought it would be like this. All these people whispering in my ears, reminding me of what I've done.
I'm back here, where it all began, where she is, but I'm too scared to find her. So I crouch alone in the dark, and listen to the whispers. Feel my cold heart be burnt through with this spark.
I want to rest.
