I dread the quiet

I can hear the night

Calling me to you

I cannot sleep

And I crave you

The hours seem to pass

So slowly

Yet I linger here

To find you

I stand at my windowsill

And feel myself melting

Vanishing away, in the dark

I never stop you from leaving

If I parted from you

For a thousand years

Our love would not forget

Yet in the gathering shadows

I still feel alone

I hold you in my thoughts

I ache to listen to you breathe

I turn to the past

With more longing

Than I can bear

I have become an errant petal

Hurtling through the heavens

I come seeking you

I am the wild ocean


In an endless dance of longing

I cannot find my way back

And in emptiness itself

In the dead of night

I know I understand

And I thirst for silence

And the desert of my dreams
