A thousand eyelids fluttering in the dim light
Millions of whispers piled deep into my head
Breathy voices that don’t recall anything other than me
Yet so many stories they will never share
You think into my ear
And leave white tears upon my pillows
Do you forget the things you haven’t learned?
Is all that ever was only in my head?
Will you leave me some day, in a storm of clouds and rust?
Upturned by overtures and overturned by shadows,
Leaving traces of pillow feathers on top of my arms
Cradling my sleeping breath into your soul stealing bag of dreams
You’ll take more than just yourselves, you know
You’re part of me, don’t you see
I’ll break without you here inside me
Clutching my memories, they’re all I have left
Until you’ve gone, but the pain will never leave me
And my world is so sore
From all the blood
I’ve scratched out of it.
