I Cannot Sleep Without You

Get up from the couch and go to bed, darling.

I wish I could crawl into you for safety. 

--Thunderstorms scare me and self-doubt floods my mind.

I have nightmares of you leaving me behind.


I stopped dreaming the moment that I found you.

You talk in your sleep, like you always do.

Even with glasses, you're always blinding me,

Salty tears from my eyes burn in third degree.


All the utensils in the drawer are all gone,

But you're my little spoon, even if it's wrong.

I leave a glass of water by your pillow.

I need a kiss goodnight- -this time take it slow.
