Awake

Your arms around my neck,

Your voice in my ear,

Your breath in my hair,

I feel you.

Whisper you love me,

Say you’ll be near,

Tell me you’re mine,

I need you.

(Don’t go. Come back. Why would you leave?)

Don’t open the blinds; delay the sun.

The morning can wait; my heart, undone. 

I’m awake, awake, awake, alone.

I ache, I ache, I ache, come home.

(Please come home.)

Look to the sky, place the note in the bottle.

Clear my head of this mirky water. 

I laugh, You laugh. Cover your blushing face.

Your eyes, my eyes, hide in self disgrace.

I wake up screaming, fallen from bed. 

I’ve only ever been alone, imaginary friend in my head; I’m dead.

I’m awake, awake, awake, alone.

I ache, I ache, I ache, come home.

Look to the sky, put my life in the bottle.

 The brim overflows; bloody water.
