and then there was me

deep in the secrets of my soul

i am lonely


languishing beneath the mask i wear


i tread in the road of despair

half hoping and pining for you

whoever you are

i hear my heart beat

amidst the noise the world makes

and sigh

i let my mind travel

to a place where i am alone in my thoughts

and cry

although i know not why

and when i return

i am alone.


this way

in my bed

there’s a space for you

come lay down

i am waiting


in my bed

i lie alone

so won’t you sleep

beside my lonely heart tonight


in my bed

my dreams, my thoughts

are all of you

i stay awake, because of you


in my bed

i see the night stars

waiting for morning

praying you’d stay


in my bed

where the sheets stay


under the covers, my pillow sits alone


in my bed

my heart awaits

for the night you’d say

let’s lie here, this way
