Feb 2011
words of promise, silent, forgot
empty days of passions knots
loop my fingers, tangle my hair
keep me close, just be there.
The world scares me, so keep me safe
as sundown ends, don't make me wait.
I see monsters in the dark at night
kept at bay by blankets and light
if I can't see them, they can't see me
but I must be careful they don't grab my feet.
You think I'm silly, that there's nothing to fear
but feel my heart, for if you know, right here
that is where the greatest terror sleeps
which gives me pause, makes me weep.
One day, it's over;— a dream to vanish in time
a dream I loved. A dream when you were mine.
