Your Words

The words echo inside my head,

I can't help but hear them speak.

All these thoughts keep me awake

and I cannot see through the night.

But I look to what I have.

It's the only thing to help me.

 

The stars share a story with me.

There's a pounding in my head.

I don't know know what I have

or know of what I speak.

I fall into the silence of night

but I still stay wide awake.

 

Everything keeps me awake

and nothing comforts me.

You're on my mind this cold winter night.

Your memory is running through the head.

The moon does not help me speak

the stars are all I have.

 

Dreams are all that I have.

Yet even those keep me awake.

My lips freeze and I cannot speak,

or say what it means to me.

I still hear your words in my head

as I watch the day turn to night.

 

The snow stars falling on this night,

and the cold is all I have.

Days like this linger in my head.

Those days I wanted to stay awake,

still mean so much to me.

I go back to the day I heard you speak...

 

“I hear the gentle words that you speak

but I can't take it to-night.

Your happiness means everything to me,

and I love just what we have.

But at night I stay awake,

trying to figure out what's in your head.”

 

Your words pulse through my head, I hear you speak.

But the words no longer keep me awake, I can make it through the night.

I know just what I have. You're everything to me...♥

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
