Tears, Words and Love

Too late to sleep I search your words for love
I found one word from you to me and cried
Although my tears are too far up above
The word and everything the word implied
I’ll dissipate in love, forget my tears
They went to sleep like angels in my head
The angels in my head are sullen fears
that watch me dissipate when I am dead
When I am dead asleep I’ll eat my dreams
for sustenance that mingles with the dark
my dreams are filled with terror, filled with screams
and yet they feed my hunger with their mark
The mark of dreams has come too late for sleep
But tears and words from you are mine to keep.
