Your voice haunts me.
Your image dances in my head.
I cannot escape this feeling
that's been filling me with dread.
I am in a constant cycle
of anxiety and despair,
'cause every time I go to sleep,
I'll see you standing there.
Your arms will wrap around me,
I'll feel safe and sound,
but I wake up every morning
and you're nowhere to be found.
I see you every day
and I thought I could escape you,
but my mind is just another place
where I am unable to shake you.
So I tried to avoid
going to sleep at every cost,
but this overbearing restlessness
has only made me feel more lost.
Please get out
before I love you even more,
for these dreams are just reminding me
of the way we felt before.
I find myself collapsing
on the floor in one big heap.
Leave me alone
so I'm not scared to fall asleep.
