lack / Of you

I can't ask you to hold me
and it hurts

it hurts in a way that's unfamiliar,
like my skin aches from a lack
Of you

and my eyes water at the thought
at the sound
of our song, each song

I want to erase you

but I need you to invade my life,
once more.

one more song
one more

don't leave me to my imagination,
it will leave nothing

for daylight tomorrow.
