When dreams take hold of you
Do I enter your subconscious?
Does my shadow lay beside you
Like yours does, and beside mine
Does yours seem to shimmer too?
Within the confines of your mind,
Do you ever admit
That I do live on
Somewhere inside you can’t reach or control?
Do you ever look at the stars
And wonder why they whispered words of misery?
And at dawn,
With your head still floating through clouds
With your thoughts drunk on pillows and cotton candy
Do your lips ever strain for mine
Only to kiss the empty space?
