Night terrors, #113

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?

That don’t trust me to the simplest thing.

Not a single great thing to this world I will bring.

 

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.

 

Once a long time ago in a wonderful state of mind.

I slept without any horrors that I would have to find.

But now I’m closing my eyes all to find all my friends die.

And I have to watch helplessly and can only hope I don’t cry.

It makes me feel so small.

Like I don’t want to sleep at all.

 

When I fall asleep it is only a coma of no dreams.

But that is better as I wake to a world of screams.

And I’m not the only one screaming in agony.

Come on and leave them alone kill me.

After all its just a dream I’ll wake up the next day.

But until then it will all stay.

 

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.

 

But you should close your eyes and slip away for me to see.

You won’t see everyone bleeding right in front of me.

In my sleep all my friends die but you should sleep.

You don’t need to see me on the ground in a heap.

Bleeding out until it’s over and then stop screaming.

I need to just stop sleeping.

 

Now this is what I want you to do.

Slip away calmly so I can’t feel better for you.

Please don’t wake up screaming for me.

Because I need something good to see.

I won’t let you get involved in this horrible fight.

And to you I say sweet dreams good night.
