Night terrors, #113

38 2 0

Close your eyes and fall into a world of dreams.

I will never find peace like you as it seems.

So go on to sleep.

I’ll stay here and weep.

But don’t worry I won’t wake you.

Even though I have nothing better to do.

You can sleep and everything is alright.

But when I close my eyes it isn’t a very pretty sight.

So consider yourself luckier than me.

That there are something’s you didn’t have to see.

You have no idea what it’s like to be scared to close your eyes.

Because I know when I hear a story of pity it’s all lies.

You have no idea what it’s like to fear sleep.

Because your dreams aren’t so deep.

Inside your head everything is alright.

I can’t think of something else but fright.

Why does everything good seem like a fairy tell?

In my sleep I feel like I went straight to hell.

So at least show me that you can sleep ok.

That’s one less worry for me today.

I’m fine when I’m awake and day light shines.

But when night comes around my world declines.

When I sleep I start to sink.

Into every way that I shouldn’t think.

I see my life flash before my eyes.

Even before my world dies.

Or has it already gone down in flames?

And is every one of my friends just a bunch of names?
