While insanity creeps, creeps stealthily without you . . .
Here I face the torture of my unforgiving mind.

Here I lie on the bed with my eyes closed against the moonlight's glow,

Closed against the neon luster in my mind.

Here I sleep with you.

Here I lie on the bed with my eyes open against the bitter darkness of my closed eyes;

Here I wake with you, but, here, you are not.

 

Thoughts spill and fill my mind as I pretend to breathe the air you breathe,

As I pretend to hide my love from sinner's eyes;

Pretend to hide myself from the world

(and)

I remember our past world together;

I remember how the distance cuts

(like the blade of a knife)

between me and you.

Oh how I can see such soft feathers dancing in your wake;

Oh how I can hear such soft thoughts speaking to my mind . . .

They whisper . . .

Whisper your name to me

 

And I let you go. . .

I release the tension after all these lost years;

I set you free and become aware of the tears that sting

At night, with my eyes wide closed, in the silence,

As your light flutters like a shadow that I

See in all shades of night - your beauty, your smile,

Your nature storms me like my

Wasted time I spent with you, and

My solitary becomes eroded,

And yet still . . . still I pray for chances

I know will never be again.

 

Lost love fills the essence of my heart, of my sorrow,

and conscious facts, known only to me, defeat my inner self

As I become uneasy with myself, with the failure

You have now so fiendishly handed down to me,

and I know that all I've once known, I now have lost

As I turn away from our past, as I shade my eyes from the sun,

As I lose myself in the dreams we had known and shared,

While insanity creeps, creeps stealthily without you . . .

Here I face the torture of my unforgiving mind.
