  1. You don’t look sick
    You don’t look right
    Looking through
    This fading light
    Somewhere distant
    Miles apart
    I touch your skin
    But not your heart

    Your lights are out
    There’s no one home
    You’re here with me
    Yet all alone
    You speak
    But you will not converse
    You don’t look sick
    You look much worse

    They took you
    I know not to where
    Stolen pride
    Unkempt hair
    One shoe missing
    Crumpled skirt
    I see no blood
    But you’ve been hurt

    Let me hold you
    Let you sleep
    What they took
    They cannot keep
    My darling.
    What am I to do?
    My darling
    Who did this to you?
