you always sleep alone
these nights
the bed empty, hollow
your room is cold and sparse
of personality, of life
and you reside within
like a lump of lead

wallow, wallow
burn and break
follow, follow
for everything at stake

your dreams are filled
with true love
a sort of dance of
images fresh
wilted when you wake
you dream and dream

carress, carress
on my cheek
carcass, carcass
of the freak

you cannot escape from
