Twisted Bed Sheets

I awaken alone; you’re not by my side
Every morning this is what I awaken to find
Only an endless dream, a figment of lust
I reach out to touch you, you slip away like dust
Midnight envelops me as I fall into sleep
Running through the rain of my nightmare’s scream
I see you up ahead of me, and finally we touch
I kiss you with passion, my heart you clutch
We settle into restless peace our time is running out
I know we can escape from here, I just don’t know how
Once again I awaken, alone and afraid
Clinging to twisted bed sheets and whispering your name
