The morning after-

The feelings that I can't hold back

Come rushing to my beaten surface

I can't get out of here

I can't see the heart of things

I've lost myself in you

I've lost my truth in your face

And my dignity in your embrace

And lost my love in you

I don't know what's left for me to do

I've done so many things to keep it away

I've locked it all in a secret place

That I keep hidden from you

The place I go to weep for you

This emptiness has swallowed me

Until I can no longer see

The God of my illusions

Laughs in my silence

Keeps me satisfied, keeps me alive

The fantasies I live off of have

Drowned my sanity

Drowned my sense of reality

I need someone to anchor me


------------------
The night is my companion
The solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied?

Found this one WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back here on page 15, and I think it deserves another chance on page one. Very good.
