    -------------------------------------------




    You sleep on needles when its time
    Something you thought would be sublime
    Twist and turn the sheets
    Live inside the heat
    Lay awake in the night

    And how youíve wondered how to touch
    The space between your fingerprints is too much
    And every world of word hangs on your lips
    But you could say everything with just one kiss
    Never knowing just exactly what this is

    You see your breath in just a moan
    Soft let, just let your arms take you, home
    While into the whirlpool you seem to fall
    As if to say her name could say it all
    Floundering on syllables just like a fool

    You sleep on needles
    Comfort the tears which cling to pillows
    You sleep on needles
    Your soul left mapped in their patchwork stains

    And if by day, you can at least get by
    Or take the sun out of the skies
    It sees too clearly
    Red rimmed with those puffy eyes
    Which prefer a night of shadows in which to hide

    Now you wonder how to touch
    These spaces between her fingerprints are just too much
    And every word is etched with her alphabet
    Every time you speak it spells a kiss
    And you never know exactly why this is

    Itís just your sigh floating on the chain of cigarettes
    The last mouthful of vodka on an unmade bed
    The fire in your eyes before you sleep
    The dreams you long for, but hope not to dream again
    Itís just the sound of sunshine on their patchwork stains

    You sleep on needles
    Comforting the pillows to which they cling
    You sleep on needles
    Your soul left mapped by the threads she is weaving

      I like this alot, and would love to hear a music version of this, to be made into a song. It made me think of a few female singer songwriters who incorporated piano in a minor key, i think that would fit this beautifully. Just a thought. This is definitely a complete piece from start to finish, and thats not something you see on here every day.
