1. When You Sleep

Holding this wolf by the ears,
Trying too hard not to hear it’s howls,
Cover up death with her scent
The echoes of another static charge in my fingers.
Weather burning the air,
An umbrella for our emotions.
This is real.
Too far to come without you,
Just a stone for a heart that we once had.
Following, to the bottom of any headache,
You’re my secret,
Can’t help it,
Just my heart beats,
Say it all.
A black rag soaked in gasoline,
Wrapped around your new mouth,
Poisoning the wishing well,
Of your eyes,
So they wrap up…
Then swell.

 Don’t ever listen to the fire snap,
It’ll remind you of the heart you once had.

The End
