Without You

The ceiling stares back at me tonight
Empty as the starless sky
I never thought it would be so cold
To be alone
Not to lie down asleep by your side

I lie alone in this cold room
With the light turned off,
Illuminating the room till it dims out
I reach my hand for the softest pillow
I could touch tonight
Toward you, and hug me,
exhausted and weak

Then suddenly I’m awake
And all around me is the cold air
of this gloomy night
It is not the cricket that keeps me awake
But the screeches of your voice
that I hear beneath my ears

Now I drink in agony in every delight
And poison in every drinking glass
I never knew it would be so sour
To be alone
Alone, without you
