and then there was me

deep in the secrets of my soul

i am lonely

defeated

languishing beneath the mask i wear

everyday

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

undisturbed

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
