Lonliness hacked away at my heart
And exposed my soul so that it could be devoured by
The Night Demons
And as my soul was being devoured
I saw the sweet blue eyes
Of salvation
Of recognition
Of caring
Of a soft voice that said
"I know you"
"I miss you"
"Your phone number lost"
I would have called you" "your lips are soft"
"Your love is tender"
I cried in cold wind that reminded me of you John
A kiss
A hug
A good-bye
"Can we get together?"
My fear says no but my heart screams yes
"Call me"
I might
I want to
I'm afraid
I don't know why but
I think you might be a dream
