Close your eyes,
Go to sleep...
You're lying awake.
The room is different
The walls dissolvereplaced by sky.
Horizon blackening, twilight beckoning,
As the clouds are stretching wide.
Stars still shining, littleholes
That light is clawing to get through.
But hope is shifting with the shadows
That are drifting on the ceiling as you move.
Just close your eyes, go to sleep...
There's nothing to be afraid of...
Are you awake
Sour thoughts are dancing now,
All around your head.
Shoulders shake...chattering teeth.
The cold windrips the covers from your bed.
The eyes are digging...
Heart is pounding...
Eyelids will not close...
Your voice is failing,
The screams derailing,
And she stands so near to you.
And nothings sweeter than the songs you're seeing,
Begging for the colder hand she hides.
Her soul is hunting.
White lights breaking!
And fluid cries.
She's reaching, screeching, imploring, see thing.
And the haunting, hurting, spilling
A kiss-like smile
that leaves you beguiled,
and the whisper of a ghost.
Shhh... There's nothing to be afraid of.
