Waiting the lifetime out.

He doesn’t sleep

He sits up straight, each night

Night after night after night

I fear night

 

All night, he doesn’t sleep

Doesn’t let me sleep

To pass the time, to watch me weep

He’ll break my heart, in short sweeps

While I break his ego, letting the hurt seep

But he doesn’t sleep

And doesn’t let me sleep

 

“It hurts here, here and here”, he says

All night, every night, he lays

I nod and let myself wait

This lifetime out.
