Part 2

 

I can't sleep

the hum is keeping me awake

and you

you left me for the morning lights

and I left you for

my own solitude

 

we met

under the moonlight tree

and you

i was thinking that you would love me

and you did

and you did

and you did

 

so for once

i decided to ask

and then

you said yes

but now you're gone

and i hate myself

but now you're gone

and i hate myself

do you know why i can't even dream

do you know why i can't dream

 

we wouldn't see each other

we'd just talk

words as hands like a gentle touch

voices kissing

and when we did no words

just feelings

 

i'm still laying on the floor

you're still playing with my hair

i'm still there

you're still there

the hearts quicken

your breath still smells of you

your eyes still reflect me

and i'd dream of you if i could dream

 

 

so for once

i decided to ask

and then

you said yes

but now you're gone

and i hate myself

but now you're gone

and i hate myself

do you know why i can't even feel

do you know why i can't feel

 

so we went back to that moon

so we went back to the moonlight

be it under tree or moon voices found each other

and no one would ever know

and no one did ever learn of us

but in the end

it didn't matter

laying on the floor my hands in your hair

i think i love you

 

but you left

whisked by the wind

away to the shore and off of the island

where the moon never shone

and the sun does shine

and i hate myself

 

did you know that i can't cry

those tears of yours will never dry

even though i don't sleep i still try

to feel my own emotion

to feel my own longing

 

you told me to keep my eyes up

you'll move on

and what we did you can learn from

and what we did you can feel again

and what you smell you can smell again

and what you sense can happen again

 

but you lied

The End
