I have taken the liberty of changing the title. Please forgive me, Mr. D.

The magic words are all yours.

when I feel

I have given too much

of myself away,

allowed observation

of the heart beneath,

revealed too much

of the soul within,

I fade into the shadows

and bleed silently

into the darkness.
