SLEEP WITH YOU

I like to believe I can live
in a world of my own,
in my head, all alone,
but I know if I leave,

I’ll be leaving you lonely.

And with you
I am here.
I am clear.

I am aware of your stare when
I speak as though you can read my mind…
I’m trying to make perfect sense.

With your patience,
I know that I can.

It’s good to have steady hands holding my strings,
whenever I become a kite in the wind.

For once in my life I am certain
That it’s gonna be alright.

I love you,
I know it deep down in my soul…
So I’ve been working some damage control
on the holes in my head,
I don’t take them to bed
I don’t sleep with my ghosts anymore.

I sleep with you.
