my eyes cannot see in the darkness, my hands are chained and when i reach for you they find only the wet, warm sheets where you laid.
walking. i hear you walking away from me down the staircase. back down the stairs your creep. or is it up?
i cannot know. i only know you return to him and tomorrow you will not know me again. until tomorrow night.
when you tread down the stairway. or is it up? and return to me.
chained by my hands, by your abandon, by our love.
i lie awakened in the dark. you are the only light i can see.
