Chuchotement (2008)

He is only sleeping.

I have never addressed this before. I have written nothing. I have said nothing about it.

No one has ever -- even once -- asked me anything about him.

A character I made up. Inserting his life and his death inside a book. Some say it was a novel. Total fiction. Or did I. Or were we. Or was he.

A dead child.

If I told you, what would you believe. What does it matter what anyone believes.

I knew him. I know him. I will always know him.

He is only sleeping.

I have never addressed this before. I have written nothing. I have said nothing about it.

No one has ever -- even once -- asked me anything about him.

A character I made up. Inserting his life and his death inside a book. Some say it was a novel. Total fiction. Or did I. Or were we. Or was he.

A dead child.

If I told you, what would you believe. What does it matter what anyone believes.

I knew him. I know him. I will always know him.

What you believe isn't relevant...

I want you to stop coming to me.

I can't stop coming to you. I came to you. You made me live again.

It hurts. Your being with me.

I will always be with you.

But it makes it so hard to let you go.

You were the one.

It was hateful. You picking me. Coming to me. Speaking to me.

Through you. Through you.

Why me.

Because you would love me. You do. Love me.

Let me go.

You mean pass through you.

Why is it so hard for you.

You protected me. No one else could do it. You did it so well. You see, no one even ever asks. But I did exist.

It was complicated. You aren't real.

Real enough.

I can't protect you anymore.

I know. Will you let me go.

I will.

You will remember that I was here and you told that story.

But you have to go now. You are only passing through.
