Last night I found myself breathing
lost between two dreams
in one I was at the edge of an abyss
in the other, I was the abyss

Last night I found myself thinking
of you and your depths
how I could easily drown
in you

last night when I woke up
I saw a vision
you were beside my bed
and I remembered:

how we used to love each other
how those painful days were
how you are now but a memory
how you are remembered only
on a piece of stone
in a garden for the dead…

last night I found myself dreaming
breathing in memories of you
waking up to find
I am alone…
