The Worst Part of a Nightmare

11 0 0

Most nights are spent in torment,

No sweet dreams for me.

Why do I deserve this?

Why can't I be set free?

The worst part of a nightmare

Is not the beasts I've met

Nor is it when I awake,

Trembling, in cold sweat.

The worst part of a nightmare

Is not when I feel ill.

Neither is it that

They always seem so real.

The worst part of a nightmare

Is not to see you lust

Or even that I'm losing

Every ounce of trust.

The worst part of a nightmare

Is not when I lose you.

The worst part of a nightmare

Is watching it come true.
