can't sleep
justme

so I can't sleep...and paper is too thin to hug
 1
your golden hair has lost its shine
 2
the missing piece in a three-part jigsaw
 3
do you believe in human sacrifice?
 4
there are no words, too small to relieve me
 5
but I guess that I hope that you know it
 6
 
 
so i can't sleep... and paper is too thin to hug
 7
the devil stares and laughes from his bed
 8
don't cry tonight, I've tears enough for both of us
 9
just smile as I remember you instead
 10
you grew in my soul and I cannot forget it
 11
my music has the rhythm of your drum
 12
 
 
but one day when it stops and
 13
you will be waiting
 14
I'll see you my brother
 15
my blood my soul my drum
 16

Ah, that is truly a horrible poem. Not that it's bad, just depressing.
