I open my eyes
And the world comes pouring in
The folly of my dreams
Quickly fade
The sound effects
Of reality ring in my ears
I can taste the emptiness
Of the nights fast

I could close my eyes
And pretend the world isn’t there
I could pretend the fragrance
Of a lover is wafting
From the other side of the bed
But there’s no rest for
The beginner

Only thoughts
Like the chorus
Of a favorite song

“I want something more
I want something more
I want something more
Than me”
