I pull your dreams out of my hair
As I wake up each morning
When I hug my knees
I find them still clinging to my fingers
With no more tears to wash my hands
I suck on my finger tips
Once inside my mouth I twirl my tongue
Around their soft bodies
Tasting them before I swallow
Making them mine forever
Who did these dreams belong to….
