I lie awake in this broken old bed,

Hearing springs screech with my every shake.
My mind wanders between the twilight times
as I desperately try to remember your face.

It wasn't long ago that you were mine,
and that smile you smiled was because of me.
Now because of you my breathing gets faster

As our memories have chosen this time to attack.


My eyes search for any shadows
as our days replay in the back of my head.
I can't afford to get distracted in this dark
And In this panic I'm scared to look under my bed.

I feel my throbbing heart leave my chest
but then realize it's just a bed spring.
But how can I put a name to those shadows
that peer deep into my soul within.

Paralyzed I begin to see the reality of this night
and the lack of will to sleep that I have.
I simply cannot allow my eyes to rest
for I never know when you’ll return again.

I can't shout a quivering cry for help
nor turn on the light to see if you're really here.
I've convinced myself something is going to happen
so I lay here still trapped in this twilight nightmare.
