My hope that you would come back.
After the usual five days
And as day six comes around and soon ends.
I know that I must have lost my mind to deal with this.
It feels like a dream that goes on and on and then when I wake up.
I can’t go to back sleep because the dream seemed so real.
I felt every touch and heard every sound and feel of it all disappearing left me slightly empty.
As I close my eyes I try to go back
For I know in that dream my body finally got the sleep it needed.
And now awake all I can do is think of you and that just isn’t okay with me anymore.
