i'm wide awake
the emptiness inside me
is silent

night is moaning
waiting for the morning
to end its pains

i start hanging up a word
to each of its twinkling tears
until my fingers get numb

night is silent now
to my languishing tales

i close my eyes
night creeps in
filling up the emptiness

we wait together
