Writing in my head.
In bed, spilling tears
While now and then mouthing “thanks”
Because of all the bad things I am,
grateful isn’t one of them.
Do you ever put off facing your feelings?
Alone in the dark I wonder
Is someone else’s world falling apart under the covers tonight?
And if so, we must meet
So we can both not be alone.
A snack, a sigh of pleasure,
an earplug to keep out the sounds from this music house
Then finally… sleep
But what’s it worth to me
if even if my dreams, I’m losing you.
Retiring some songs,
all those that made me think of you.
Retiring my heart too while I’m at it,
Locking it and hiding the key
So I won’t hurt any longer,
So you won’t be able to hurt me.
