Keeping Time


It's 1:41 am

I am still awake


The room is so lonely 

I can only shake


Where are your two strong arms

beautiful hands to hold mine


Bring me into the safe, warm

sanctuary of your chest


Where is the gentle breath that calms me



I need the smell of cigarettes and oldspice

to reach R.E.M


It's 1:45 

You are not here with me
