I'm laid here awake in the nothingness
Surrouded by the dark
With nothing but my own madness for company
Waiting, waiting patiently for you to come & take me.
The pitch of the night envelopes me
Pulls me in tight & still you don't come
Still I don't sleep as you hold me here in the nothingness
My body limp from tiredness, my brain tuned into my reality, my life.
As colours pass across my half shut lids I think of you
I wait for you, I beg for you to come to me to hear my pleas
Then the colours fade & darkness once again takes over
Until again it has me in its nothingness.
A world where the dark in the night sky is prominet
A place from where the moon shines brightly
A world I should not exist in
Yet you return me here again & again.
When tiredness feels like sanity draining from my mind
I lay there in the nothingness & the dark
I close my eyes & pull in close the pitch dark
I stop the march of thoughts that casscade through my mind
Before I know it after hours of hope
you've wrapped me up in a little dream boat
You've come & you've taken me just as I asked
Thank you for letting me sleep at last.
