Dreams creep up on me

Tormenting me at night

To conquer me in day

Shedding no light

Behind the meaning

They secretly posses

Pointing out sins

I need to confess.

They claw at my mind

With no release from pain

To ask for help

Would mean labeled insane

I open my eyes from sleep

Expecting to seize the day

Escaping from nightmares

There's no other way.

Eyes opened wide

to escape the strife

And I realize with shock

That nightmare was life.
